Miriam Amer، an Egyptian athletic came first in her group of the playoffs qualified to the U21 world championship held in Hungary. 
She bagged 525 points after competitions of fencing and swimming.
Salam Abdel Maqsoud، another Egyptian athletic came tenth with a balance of 489 points.
It is worth to mention that the pentathlon is a contest featuring five events. The name is derived from Greek: combining the words pente (five) and -athlon (competition) (Greek: πένταθλον). 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. Pentathletes were considered to be among the most skilled athletes، and their training was often part of military service—each of the five events in the pentathlon was thought to be useful in war or battle.
