UIPM are challenging cricket. Now cricket has to make a 30 minutes long version to assert dominance. 

I really love it every year, when our guru @Sindo creates the annual discussion thread and changes an author to me. And then I think I have some memories washed.

sad news to begin the new year...   Valter Magini, president of the Italian Federation of Modern Pentathlon, died yesterday at the age of 73 because of covid-19...    R.I.P. 

With Junior Europeans, Senior Europeans, Junior Worlds being held within just 21 days it's gonna be very irrepresentative competition, as the top Junior athletes are also strong points of their Senior teams - especially that the strongest Seniors will go for Tokyo 2020 and the Senior Europeans would be a good opportuinty for the others, especially in relays, where oftenly we can see some Junior names.

It will be interesting to see how the UPIM’s response to this compares to the IHHF’s: https://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1103273/calls-for-belarus-to-lose-uipm-worlds

Very different response compared to the IHHF.

I've received an info from Janusz Peciak, UIPM Sports Director - Istambul and Cancun were also bidding. What I know there was an interest from Hungary, but on a price of resigning from the World Cup, and from Poland, but it wouldn't be in a big city, which is a marketing and PR "condition" of UIPM in latest days.
