  • 3. What is Nordic Combined
    • Nordic Combined is a winter sport that involves skiing off a slope and cross-country skiing. This Olympic event has been contested since 1892 at Holmenkollen Ski Festival at Oslo.

  • 6. Individual Event for Canada team Jason Myslicki
  • 7. Mass Start
    • In the mass start event, the cross country race is held first. The winner of that event receives 120 points, the others get 15 points subtracted for each minute behind the leader. In the ski jump, no style points are awarded, although jumpers receive fewer points for falling or failing to make a telemark landing.
  • 8. Team Relay
    • The team event is again similar to the individual event, but contested by teams of four athletes. Each takes 1 jump from the ski jumping large hill, with all jumps counting towards the team total.
  • 9. Sprint
    • The sprint event is basically the same, but only one jump is performed on the large hill, and the cross-country distance is 7.5 km.
  • 10. Hurricane Sprint
    • Recently, a newer form called "Hurricane sprint" has been introduced, which is similar to the sprint using the Gundersen method, but based on extra distance instead of extra time. The distance is still 7.5 km, but only the best contestant from the ski jumping will run that distance and all others start a given distance behind,
  • 11. Conclusion
    • We hope that you learned a lot from this wiki page and to cheer for team Canada.
