Nordic Combined


Nordic Combined

These events have been added since the 1st Olympic Winter Games in Chamonix - Mont Blanc in 1924.

Nordic Combined Events

All three Nordic combined events involve a ski jumping competition and a cross-country skiing race. The Individual Gundersen event, ski jumping is accomplished on the normal hill (90m). And for the Team and the Sprint events, ski jumping is accomplished on the large hill (120m). While the cross-country portion of the Individual Gundersen event has a 15km race, the sprint event has a 7.5km race, and the team event has a 4x5km relay.

    Individual Gundersen

    This competition involves a run down a heavily moguled course with two jumps. The Olympic format consists in a one-run elimination round followed by a one-run final of 16 20 women and 16 20 men. In the finals, participants ski in reverse order of their finish in the qualification round. The winner is the skier with the highest score in the final round.

    Sprint

    This event consists of a large-hill competition and a 7.5km cross-country race. In contrast with the individual Gundersen event, the ski jumping portion of the sprint event is performed on the large hill and includes one jump instead of two. The second part involves of the competition, each competitor will compete in the 7.5km cross-country event. The start order is determined by the ski jumping results. This way, the winner of the ski jumping competition starts in first place.

    Team

    Here each team involves four jumpers who take two jumps off the normal hill on the first part of the competition. The team's score in the jumping portion corresponds to the total score of the eight jumps. Same as in the Individual Gundersen and Sprint events, the Gundersen Method is used to determine the start times in the relay. The team whose final skier crosses the fish line first is the win.
