Cairo is set to host the opening event of the International Modern Pentathlon Union (UIPM) World Cup season.
The Egyptian capital will be hosting World Cup competition for the fifth straight season, but is hosting the opening event this time around having held the second event last year.
Rio 2016 silver medallist Pavlo Tymoshchenko of Ukraine and Britain's Kate French emerged as the winners on that occasion.
French will not be able to repeat her success, with the Briton absent from the first leg of the campaign, which begins tomorrow.
She is one of the established names in the British squad who will be missing from the competition, with their athletes seeking to peak later in the season.
As a result, Britain's team largely consists of up-and-coming talent, including teenagers Bradley Sutton, Jamie Harper and George Budden.
Georgia Hannam and Zoe Davison have also been included in the squad, as well as Kerenza Bryson and Charlie Follett.
Competition is set to begin tomorrow with women's qualification, while men's qualification will follow on Thursday (March 1).
The women's and men's finals are scheduled to take place on March 2 and 3, respectively.
The World Cup will conclude with a mixed relay event on Sunday (March 4).
Belarus triumphed in the discipline at last year's World Cup at the Cairo International Stadium.
Los Angeles will host the second World Cup of the season from March 24 to 31, before Kecskemét in Hungary welcomes athletes from May 3 to 7.
Sofia in Bulgaria will stage the penultimate event between May 23 to 27, with Astana in Kazakhstan hosting the World Cup Final from June 21 to 24.
