Nordic Combined

Nordic combined was first held at the Winter Olympics in 1924, and has been on the program ever since. Nordic combined comprises both ski jumping and cross-country skiing disciplines. At the Winter Olympics the Nordic Combined event remains the only event solely for men, even though in 2014 a women's event was added to the ski jump program.

Events for 2014

Ski jumping is held first, followed by the cross country skiing race (though earlier Olympic events had this order reversed). The cross country race is currently held as a pursuit race, meaning that the competitors start at different intervals, and the winner of the combined event is the first to cross the finish line.
