Neustadt - Austria (220704)
After the European Championships in Ankara, I
have decided not to go to Winer Neustadt and I informed the
Austrian mission. Sorry, but athletes were too weak after 3
competition and we will train for the World Championships.
Thank you for invitation, but we are not able to participate
and will instead go to Latvia for a training camp.
All the best
Lt Heino Märks
Chief of Estonian Delegation to CISM
WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2005 (210704)
Only recently, during the
European Championship held in Ankara - Turkey, the Turkish
Delegation to CISM withdraw their candidature for the World
Military Pentathlon is
facing a difficult situation, only three times since 1950 no
World Championships were organised, primarily due to political
crises. For the last time during the Falkland-war in 1982 no
Championship took place.
The TC Military Pentathlon is
looking for candidates to step in as host for 2005.
In case that no World
Championship is organised, some countries primarily outside
Europe will face a very difficult situation, since these
countries usually compete internationally only during the
World Championships. There is an enormous danger, that some
countries could leave the "pentathlon family" for good.
But also for the European
Countries the sense of Military Pentathlon, supported by their
Armies, might be questioned, in case there are no major
Championships organised (in 2005 no European Championships are
planned up to now).
Austria is evaluating the
possibility to shift its planned World Championships from 2006
to 2005. However, the chance is little due to organisational
reasons. (problems of accommodation).
Mowafak JOUMAA, head of the Physical
Education and Sport Department of the Syrian Army and patron
of the Syrian Military Pentathlon team was promoted to the
rank of Major General.
