Modern Pentathlon is governed by the UIPM (Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne). Shorter forms of the sport under the UIPM include Tetrathlon, Triathle, Biathle and Laser-Run. Opportunities to develop athletes toward the complete Modern Pentathlete are available from the ages of 7 to 70+ in the Western Cape province. Although these are not Olympic disciplines they develop the athlete towards that code. However, the development disciplines all have SA Championship and World Champs opportunities for the athletes to represent their provinces and country.
