Schmid wins at Universiade
Swiss Tommy Schmid was the winner of the first nordic combined competition at the Winter Universiade in Erzurum (TUR). Schmid was third after the jumping, but with the third-best time in the race he could clearly beat half-time leaders Ivan Panin (RUS) and Shun Yamamoto from Japan.
After starting 22 seconds behind, Schmid then won with 10.8 seconds ahead of Steffen Tepel (GER/14th after the jumping, best time in the race) and Panin (15.3 seconds behind).
The competitions in Erzurum will continue on the weekend with a mass start and a team event. Here are the complete results!
