The Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne (UIPM) is the world governing body for the core Olympic sport of Modern Pentathlon. This sport has been on the Olympic Programme since 1912 following the concept of Baron Pierre de Coubertin to include a unique sport reflective of the ancient pentathlon and to have the most complete athletes. The five disciplines of Modern Pentathlon are fencing, swimming, riding, and laser shooting combined with running.
The UIPM organises every year a World Championships for senior, junior and youth athletes, as well as a World Cup Series that is made up by four events culminating in a World Cup Final. As sub-sports of Modern Pentathlon, the UIPM also organise worldwide competitions in Modern Tetrathlon (4 disciplines), Triathle (3 disciplines), Biathle (2 disciplines), Beach Modern Pentathlon and Laser Run. In addition World University Modern Pentathlon Championships and World School Biathlon are held annually.
