Pentathlon Alberta 2013 Provincials May 11th, Calgary - A four-event competition was completed with results now posted.
Youth Olympic Games qualification - NORCECA countries will hold a qualification competition for the 2014 Youth Olympic Games. Youth in birth years 1996 to 1999 are eligible. The qualifier will be held in Acapulco, Mexico later this fall. Pentathlon Canada has finalized the selection events for this competition as a maximum of four athletes from each gender are eligible to attend from any one country. The selection events will be the Youth A division at the US Youth Championships and Canadian National Pentathlon Championships (both in July 2013). Canadian Nationals is a required event but for athletes attending both events their best score across the two events will be considered for their selection to the qualifier. At the qualifier itself the top placing male and top placing female athlete will achieve direct qualification to the Youth Olympic Games. The subsequent opportunity to qualify is through the Youth World Championships in May 2014. Additional detail on the qualification process is available on the UIPM website. Alberta Athletes interested in attending these events should contact email@example.com as soon as possible.
