USA Olympic modern pentathlon team members Amro ElGeziry and his wife, Isabella Isaksen practice shooting at targets in a park in Colorado Springs, Colo., Friday, April 24, 2020. Amro Elgeziry and Isabella Isaksen are just your ordinary married Olympic modern pentathlon couple trying to navigate their way through the challenges of training during the coronavirus pandemic. Their sport consists of five events, but they can't practice equestrian horse jumping or swimming at the moment with the facilities closed. For the rest, they improvise. They practice their fencing footwork in the backyard, shoot laser pistols at a target in a nearby park and squeeze in early morning runs along trails as they train for the Tokyo Games in 2021.
