Modern Pentathlon

The long-awaited Modern Pentathlon at the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is only one day away – so how can you stay across the action?

Whether you’re watching the Olympic Games on TV or online, live or on demand – or if you prefer to stay in touch via social media – our fan’s guide will make sure you don’t miss a thing.

 

Watch the action

As we’re approaching the closing stages of the Olympic Games you probably already know how to watch it, but you can find out which TV network is broadcasting the Games in your country by visiting the official Olympics website.

UIPM has also created global timezone maps which tell you the start time in different parts of the world.
