Bath is hosting the European Modern Pentathlon Championships and Loraine was delighted to be invited to the Civic Reception which was held at the Assembly Rooms in Bath.

Loraine and Morgan-Brinkhurst Consultancy have been supporting Team Bath and many of its athletes for several years and are pleased to be supporting the GB Modern Pentathlon, many of their athletes are based at the sports training village at Team Bath.

The Chairman of Bath & North East Somerset Council Cllr. Ian Gilchrist welcomed representatives from the board of GB Pentathlon, the Director of GB Modern Pentathlon Nigel Laughton, athlete members of the European teams taking part and the Deputy Mayor of Bath Cllr. Shaun McGall.

History of the European Championships:
Founded in 1987, the Senior European Modern Pentathlon Championships initially began as a men’s-only competition, with the women’s event introduced in 1989. From 1989 -1997, the competition was held biannually and took place in two separate host cities.

Since 1998 the event has been an annual feature within the international calendar and in 2000, both the men’s and women’s events were held in the same host city for the first time. This format has continued ever since.
In 2011 the competition was held in the UK at Medway Park in Kent and formed part of the preparations for the London 2012 Olympic Games. The UK are pleased to host the games for the second time this month at the University of Bath.
