- 18 km cross-country skiing
- normal hill ski jumping
The cross-country skiing part of this event was combined with the main medal event of cross-country skiing. Those results can be found above in this article in the cross-country skiing section. Some athletes (but not all) entered in both the cross-country skiing and Nordic combined event, their time on the 18 km was used for both events. One would expect that athletes competing at the Nordic combined event, would participate in the cross-country skiing event as well, as they would have the opportunity to win more than one medal. This was not always the case due to the maximum number of athletes that could represent a country per event.
The ski jumping (normal hill) event was held separate from the main medal event of ski jumping, results can be found in the table below.
|Time||Points||Rank||Distance 1||Distance 2||Total points||Rank||Points||Rank|
|Athlete||Event||Jump 1 (Dist.)||Jump 2 (Dist.)||Total|
