PyeongChang Olympic Nordic Combined

By Ninian Carter

February 9, 2018 - February 25, 2018 - Nordic Combined is one of 24 sporting competitions of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang 2018, South Korea.

Nordic Combined has been a part of the Winter Olympics since 1924 and marries the disciplines of cross-country skiing and ski-jumping, with individual small-hill and large hill events, and a team event. The points awarded for the jump determine the starting order for the cross-country race, with the athletes attempting to make up any time advantage held by the leader.
