Cam Edwards speaks with Barry Matchett of the USA Pentathlon Board about the recent decision to replace the traditional air pistols in the modern pentathlon at the 2012 London Olympics with laser guns following a successful trial at the inaugural Youth Olympics. Matchett says that while the laser barrels will help shooters with the travel issues that arise from international gun laws, the sport is certainly altered by the new format. The laser barrel will still discharge a puff of air to retain some of the sound and feel of shooting, but it does not seem true to the spirit of the Olympic pentathlon.
