Nordic Combined
by Rodney, Matthew M. and Anthony L.

Nordic combined is a combination of a cross country event and a ski jumping event. This event includes two jumps off one of the hills and one cross country race. The distance traveled in the two jumps is added together. The skier with farthest distance in the two jumps starts first on the second day in the cross country portion of the race. The other racers follow, depending on how far they jumped. The first person to cross the finish line wins.  There are individual events and team events.
