The Sports Training Village is home to Pentathlon GB’s National Training Centre. Many world medal and Olympic medal-winning athletes train and/or study at the University of Bath.
In 2019, the Sports Training Village will once again play host to the Modern Pentathlon European Championships, a qualifying event for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The 2015 European Championships were also staged here and proved a great success on the road to Rio 2016.
A phenomenal record of success
Great Britain has an outstanding track record in the sport, with Britain’s women having won a medal at every Olympic Games from Sydney 2000 to London 2012.
Facilities at the STV include indoor fencing pistes, indoor and outdoor shooting ranges equipped with laser shooting targets, a floodlit eight-lane athletics track, an Olympic legacy 50m swimming pool, a high performance gym exclusive to performance athletes and a physiotherapy and sport science-dedicated centre.
