For the second consecutive year the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst has played host to a top-class international military Modern Pentathlon competition. Yane Marques, a Brazilian Army Sergeant who gained Bronze at the London 2012 Olympics, won the women’s individual title and other British Army successes included a particularly strong Cambridge officer cadet trio: OCdt Ed Tusting won the men’s individual riding element, OCdt Emma Byatt finished as Runner-Up in the women’s individual fence and OCdt Laura Plant placed 3rd in the women’s riding.
This year, teams from Brazil, Ireland and Germany competed alongside a total of 11 all-ranks British Army competitors. The event reflects the Army’s spiritual leadership of the sport, which originated in military academies in the late 19th century, and Sandhurst hosted the Modern Pentathlon event at the 1948 London Olympic Games. Army Modern Pentathlon uses Sandhurst as its Centre of Excellence and holds its competitions at the RMAS each year.
