Judges certified and ready to oversee Olympic qualifier in Kyrgyzstan
The Kyrgyzstan Open in September 2019 will be an Olympic Pentathlon world ranking competition and UIPM has provided training and certification to a large group of judges ahead of the competition.
The competition takes place from September 26-29 and 24 judges now have a qualification under the UIPM Judges Certification Programme to support their technical supervision of the competition.
A seven-day course at the Kyrgyzstan Olympic Committee facility in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan, was overseen by UIPM Instructor Dimitri Menshikov (RUS) and the closing ceremony was attended by Valerii Novikov, President of the Modern Pentathlon & Biathlon Federation Kyrgyzstan.
The seminar was attached to the Open Kyrgyzstan Championships / Central Asian Cup, which enabled the students to gain practical experience and also to be assessed by the Instructor.
The JCP was restructured in late 2017 to give students a chance to attend dynamic courses with sessions based on a balance between theory and practice.
In 2018, UIPM certified more than 200 judges in various locations across the world, including Mexico City (MEX) ahead of the UIPM Pentathlon World Championships, Jakarta (INA) ahead of the 2018 Asian Games, Almaty (KAZ) ahead of the UIPM 2018 Pentathlon World Cup Final and Buenos Aires (ARG) ahead of the 2018 Youth Olympic Games.
