UIPM is thrilled to announce that the 2nd FISU World University Championships Modern Pentathlon will take place in 2024, with a view to the competition firmly establishing itself as a key biennial event on the international Modern Pentathlon calendar.

Building on the resounding success of the inaugural edition in 2018, the 2024 World University Championships (WUC) will bring together the finest student athletes from across the globe to compete in the picturesque city of Kaunas, Lithuania, renowned for its active student community and sports lifestyle.

Reflecting the exciting transition currently taking shape within Modern Pentathlon, the WUC will adopt the new Obstacle Laser Run format, combining three of the sport’s most accessible and dynamic disciplines. There will be Individual, Team and Mixed Relay categories, making the sport even more accessible for students and universities.
