Quotable Caitlin Flathers: "I came to the sport of modern pentathlon through unusual channels. As a senior in college I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life so, while watching the Beijing Games, I decided a trip to the Olympics would be pretty cool. Without much of an athletic background, I really didn't have a sport so I proceeded to Google Olympic sports and picked the most obscure one I could find. And here I am today!"
