The youth will have to wait

The series continues. It promises to be endless. Meeting in virtual mode, the executive committee of the International Modern Pentathlon Union (UIPM) decided to postpone two world championships, dedicated respectively to juniors (under 21) and the youth (under 17 and under 19 years). Both competitions were scheduled for February 2021 in Alexandria, Egypt. They are shifted by five months, to now slip into the international calendar in the last weeks before the Tokyo Games (July 4-10 for the youth, July 11-17 for juniors). Both competitions are maintained in Alexandria.
