Nordic Combined: Cross-Country and Ski Jumping Never Looked So Cool

NBCUniversal Media, LLC

You've probably heard the words "Nordic Combined" aplenty these last few weeks -- it's one of the 15 sports in the 2022 Winter Olympics -- but do you know what it is?

Nordic Combined combines (get it?) cross-country skiing and ski jumping into one sport. That sport is broken out into a dozen events at the Beijing Games (and Norway, gotta love them, is owning more than a few of those events).

See some of the sport's highlights from the 2022 Games so far below and learn some basic 101 on Nordic Combined while you're at it.
