Mensagem do Presidente


Dear pentathlon friends,
It is with great pleasure and joy that the Portuguese Federation of Modern Pentathlon organizes once again another edition of Tetrathlon U19 World Championships.

Our country has gathered a great amount of experience and overall recognition over the past decade, hosting several top international modern pentathlon events from different categories.

This recognition comes also from the full support of both national and local authorities, of which we are thankful once again.

A word goes also for the foreign countries that visit us once again for this great event, enjoying the best things Portugal has to offer and in particular the city of Caldas da Rainha – wonderful food, great weather and friendly people.

Therefore we would like to salute all participants and wish all the success in the competition, with sportsmanship, friendship and most of all with the proud feeling of being part of the modern pentathlon family – the most complete all round sport in modern era.

Welcome to Portugal, welcome to Tetrathlon U19 World Championships!!

Manuel Barroso
FPPM President
