Conference paper


Directing the endurance training in modern pentathlon is based on applying elements of swimming and running training. The correlation of these two training modes influences the results of biathlon, that is the results in swimming and in cross country running which are influenced by high physical fitness and tolerance of disturbances in blood acid-base balance (5).
