This project aims at employing Modern Pentathlon as a tool to promote health-enhancing physical activity for European youth and adult population; and at providing dual career opportunities to athletes of the individual disciplines that form Modern Pentathlo who will be empowered as coaches/trainers. The project capitalizes on the potential of grassroots sport as a tool to boost the positive effect of physical activity on health, and on the potential of sport practice in general as instrument to promote important values (fair-play, mutual respect, discipline).
- Promoting participation in health-enhancing physical activity through Modern Pentathlon.
- Providing training to athletes of individual disciplines to become Modern Pentathlon coaches/trainers (dual career).
