Sgt. Nathan Schrimsher competes in Modern pentathlon, a five-sport event consisting of fencing, swimming, equestrian show jumping, cross-country running and pistol shooting – all in the same day. After getting started in the uncanny sport at age 12, he soon began dreaming of becoming an Olympian. After three successful appearances in the Modern Pentathlon Junior World Championships, Schrimsher quickly climbed the ranks of the U.S. men’s senior division. In July of 2015, Schrimsher finished third at the Pan American Games in Toronto, Canada, to earn a berth in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games in Brazil.
