triathlon and pentathlon
Ancient Greek Olympic sports included footraces, wrestling, pentathlon, javelin, discus, and chariot racing.
The modern pentathlon was invented by the Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Games. The name derives from the Greek penta- "five" and -athlon "contest". The addition of modern to the name distinguished it from the original pentathlon of the ancient Olympic Games, which consisted of the stadion foot race, wrestling, long jump, javelin, and discus. As the events of the ancient pentathlon were modeled after the skills of the ideal soldier of that time, Coubertin created the contest to simulate the experience of a 19th century cavalry soldier behind enemy lines: he must ride an unfamiliar horse, fight with pistol and sword, swim, and run. The event was first held at the 1912 Olympic Games, and was won by Swedish athlete G

The ancient pentathlon in the original Olympic Games covered skills thought to be useful in war: long jump, javelin, discus, running (a short race), and wrestling. The modern pentathlon takes that same idea, and "modernized" it to early 20th century warfare. It consists of shooting, swimming, fencing, equestrian (horse riding) and cross country running.
The first pentathlon was documented in Ancient Greece and was part of the Ancient Olympic Games. Five events were contested over one day for the Ancient Olympic pentathlon, starting with the long jump, javelin throwing, and discus throwing, followed by the stadion (a short foot race) and wrestling.
