Germany has dominated the Nordic Combined events at the OWG with Johannes Rydzek to lead a clean sweep in the large hill individual and Eric Frenzel winning the normal hill event. Germany also joined Finland as the only country to have won three gold medals in the sport at one Games.
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. The sport was included at the 1924 Winter Olympics, and has been on the programme ever since.
