  1. Active/non active Military Pentathlon nations

a list will be found in the www section soon.

We soon may see new nations participating in Military Pentathlon: 
Botswana; Lesotho; Namibia; Poland; 
Egypt and Algeria will return to the Pentathlon "familiy"

  1. Visa requirements, weapon transport

    Delegations are reminded to apply for the relevant documents in time! 
    A “Shengen Visa” for the European Union needs approx. 4 weeks lead time. 
    Keep yourself informed about the IATA transport requirements for weapons and ammunition not to be surprised the last moment.

  2. Training assistance

At the General Assembly the President TC was contacted by some Chiefs of Delegation interested in Military Pentathlon. It would be extremely helpful to have some experienced trainers earmarked that could be drawn upon, if required. Details need of course be agreed upon case by case.

  1. Military Pentathlon Identification Number - MilPIN

    Delegations are reminded to forward names of Military Pentathlon newcomer athletes (together with a copy of the passport or service pass, showing name and birth date) to 
    Col De Wulf
    Twee Leuwenstraat 8
    B- 3078 Everberg-Kortenberg
    Tel: +322 / 759 98 95
    Fax:+322 / 757 03 39
    Tel: +32 / 477 / 39 96 75 (mobile)
    E-mail: [email protected]
               [email protected]

    The MilPIN will then be forwarded to the respective delegation. Only a few teams sent an adapted list for 2002 to Col De Wulf, asking eventually for PIN's for their new athletes.

  1. Check-in procedure – starting lists

A new and standardised “Check-in form” is available in the "Regulations Section".
The "Check-in form" is part of the regulations!

Delegations/missions are requested urgently to stick to the procedures:
a) applying for MilPINs for new athletes
b) send preliminary and final entries in time
c) use the MilPIN names exactly in the final entries


    Friendship through sport!
