You may have read this bit on the International Olympic Committee’s choosing to keep the pentathlon over wrestling:
Schormann [president of the Union International de Pentathlon Moderne] credited the recent changes to the sport, especially the inclusion of women in 2000 and a broader swath of countries competing, with helping the I.O.C.’s decision to keep modern pentathlon.
“It is a movement of women,” Schormann said. “In our sport, everything the women do is equal to the men. And more people are training around the world in different societies and religious groups. It’s open to everyone.”
