  • Nissin Food Products’ modern pentathlon supporting character: “Pentaurus-kun”
March 01, 2018| ,


BLAST has produced “Pentaurus-kun”, a character in support of “Modern pentathlon”, an official Olympics game.
The character is equipped with a motif from each event under modern pentathlon. In particular,
the lower body representing equestrian show jumping is made of a light material,
designed to accommo-date the wearer’s movement. The feature allows the wearer to pose for photo shooting,
realizing a realistic horse body specifically built for usability.

“Pentaurus-kun” was created by Nissin Food Products Co., Ltd., an official noodle partner of Tokyo 2020 Olympics,
in support of modern pentath-lon (kindai-goshu in Japanese), which suffers poor recognition in Japan.
Together with Gospellers, the character has formed a special unit called “Kinda-Goshu-pellers”
to promote modern pentathlon for Tokyo 2020.

On the day of the event, Pentaurus-kun made a personal appearance at the Ajinomoto Stadium for a photo session with visitors.
