2019 European Championships at University of Bath
See potential stars of Tokyo 2020
Dubbed “Gladiators Return”, the Championships – a qualifying event for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games – will see the best modern pentathletes from across Europe descend on the former Roman Spa town which also played host to the 2015 Championships where Joe Choong and Kate French both bagged Rio qualifying slots for GB.
More than 100 leading athletes from across the continent will be competing for one of the eight Olympic qualifying places available in both the men’s and women’s individual competitions. There will also be relay events during an action-packed week.
Five sports, one venue
The University of Bath Sports Training Village will be transformed into spectator arenas for all five disciplines – swimming in the Olympic-sized London 2012 Legacy Pool, fencing in the sports hall, show-jumping on the athletics in-field and the run/shoot on the outdoor athletics track and surrounding countryside.
Come and watch world-class sport
Tickets for the event will go on sale in Autumn 2018. As well as enjoying Olympic-level competition, there will also be interactive opportunities to try the sports involved and other attractions for spectators.
