With precision and technique
The Nordic combined is a mixture of cross-country skiing and ski jumping. The German Nordic combined athletes have always delivered in recent years, achieving consistent excellence. Ever since 2001, the team of national coach Hermann Weinbuch succeeded in bringing home medals from every World Cup and Olympic Games.
The German athletes dominated all four Nordic combined events at the FIS Nordic Ski World Championships 2017 in Lahti, Finland. Taking home four Gold medals, Johannes Rydzek excelled at the Championships. He claimed Gold in the two individual Nordic combined events, set the pace in the team sprint with Eric Frenzel and defended the German title in the Nordic combined relay with Frenzel, Björn Kircheisen and Fabian Riesle.
