Established in 1948, the International Union of Modern Pentathlon (UIPM) is the authoritative institution for the modern pentathlon, a sport which combines five disciplines: show jumping, fencing, swimming, shooting and running. At the initiative of Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the sport made its first appearance at the Olympics in Stockholm in 1912. The headquarters of the UIPM was set up in Monaco 20 years ago.
