Press conference in Chaikovskiy on the 4th of January, 2014 with winner Tim Hug from Switzerland who achieved the first Swiss Nordic Combined win since 1994, runner-up Björn Kircheisen from Germany and Miroslav Dvorak from the Czech Republic.

Nordic combined is a winter sport in which athletes compete in both cross-country skiing and ski jumping. The first major competition in Nordic combined was held in 1892 in Oslo at the first Holmenkollen Ski Festival, an event still held annually. In Norway, popularity of the Holmenkollen, and Nordic combined in general, was great. The sport was included at the 1924 Winter Olympics, and has been on the programme ever since.
