The 2009 Brazilian Modern Pentathlon Championships was held last weekend in Resende, a city placed between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, at the Agulhas Negras Militar Academy. As expected, Yane Marques won the women seniors competition, with 5336 points. Larissa Lellys was second and Paula Souza completed the podium. In the men's competition, Aloísio Sandes clinched the title, with Luís Barroso Magno in second and veteran Wagner Romão in third. Priscila Oliveira finished first in juniors and Mariana Laporte took the title in Youth A with an impressive score of 4588 points.
Good luck to girls and boys at Youth Olympic Qualifying in Buenos Aires, Argentina, that will happen in December. I hope they can get a spot in Singapore Games.
