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 2018

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.
