The Road to London

The Road to London Goes Through Charlotte


Modern Pentathlon is just one of three events Charlotte will be hosting this summer.  London may be calling, but before these athletes compete across the pond, they need to make a critical stop in the Queen City. An unprecedented amount of athletic ability with ties to 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London will take place in Charlotte this spring, bringing together three Olympic sports in one exceptional city.

The Modern Pentathlon World Cup and Olympic Qualifier kicks off the excitement beginning March 8 – 11 at facilities including Grady Cole Center, Memorial Stadium and the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center. Then April 12 – 14, the Olympic Trials for Canoe Slalom take to the rapids at the U.S. National Whitewater Center. Finally, the 2012 Charlotte UltraSwim hits the pool at the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center May 10 – 13.
