iSportconnectTV spoke exclusively to Jon Austin about Pentathlon GB and his hopes with the Olympic Games and the impact it can have.

Jon talks about the importance of Lottery funding and how it can be used towards the future of Pentathlon GB. There is also discussion about how the poor economic environment may have impacted on Pentathlon. We also ask Jon about how the image of modern pentathlon is perceived and how it can change for the better.

As Jon recently said in a statement, the Olympics for Pentathlon were a great success, especially with Samantha Murray’s silver medal. Jon also maintains praise for people behind the scenes and the hard work that has been put in over the years, something which he is keen to discuss within out interview.

We also take an intersting look at the ‘Whole sports plan’. To find out more click on the links below!
