The 5th Military World Games have peace as its motto. In the Military Pentathlon, collaboration between countries is the mission. Major Hildebrand is Brazilian and acts as the coach of Colombia. According to his words, the love for his country continues.
“It’s a very good experience for those who began the sport as an athlete cadet. Being Brazilian and training Colombia is my mission. But I only root for Brazilian athletes,” said the Major, who’s trained for 18 years in the Military Pentathlon.
The man who since February of this year has trained the male and female teams of Colombia explained the work that’s being done in his current country. “Brazil and Venezuela, which are among the five best in the world [in Military Pentathlon], joined together to help Colombian Military Pentathlon grow. The intention is to place Colombia amongst the top ten,” said Major Hildebrand.
