SARASOTA, Fla. -- Final preparations are under way on the Suncoast as the 2014 Modern Pentathlon World Cup Finals is set to kick off Friday.  This is the first time the event will be held in the United States in 40 years.

The winners go to the Olympics.  

Competition starts June 6. Women compete Friday, men Saturday. Mixed relays are Sunday.  And not only does the pentathlon give Suncoast residents a chance to watch some of the best athletes in the world compete at the peak of their game, it also brings a lot of visitors to the Suncoast and is a real boost to the economy.

ABC 7's Ray Collins will have a preview of the events tonight on ABC 7 News at 5.
