An exciting sport where athletes need explosive power to excel at ski jumping and extraordinary stamina to shine at cross-country skiing. Mixing technique and tactics, Nordic Combined has an Olympic tradition which dates back to the first Winter Olympic Games in Chamonix 1924.
The jump was just perfect and being first at the start of the race helped me. It made me more relaxed. This is what makes Nordic combined great!Tim Kopp, Youth Olympic Gold medallist, Nordic Combined, Lillehammer 2016
