This is a list of medalists in the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in nordic combined.

Introduction[edit]

This event debuted in 1925. Then, the athletes competing in Nordic combined competed together with the 18 km athletes and the ski jumpers, so an athlete could conceivably win gold in ski jumping and combined on the same day. This format existed until 1939. From 1950, there were separate races for athletes competing in the combined competition, and there was one individual competition, with three jumps where the best two counted, and a 15 km cross country race. Later, the third jump was abolished. From 1985 onwards, the Gundersen method - named after the former combined athlete Gunder Gundersen, who devised the system - was used, where the points from ski jumping were recalculated into cross country skiing times and the athletes then started with a staggered start, the winning ski jumper starting first. The team event debuted in 1982, the sprint in 1999, and the mass start will debut in 2009. Also in 2009, the 15 km individual Gundersen was changed to a 10 km individual normal hill event while the 7.5 sprint event was changed to a 10 km individual large hill event with the former involving a single jump from the normal hill while the latter involves a single jump from the large hill.[1]

Events[edit]

10 km individual normal hill[edit]

Formerly known as the 18 km/ 15 km Individual Gundersen, this event involved two jumps from the ski jumping normal hill. For the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2009 in Liberec, the event will involve a single jump from the ski jumping normal hill followed by 10 km of cross country skiing.[1][2] Any one point difference between competitors in the ski jump represents 4 seconds between them at the start of the cross country part of the competition.

The 10 km individual normal hill is one of only three events held at every FIS Nordic World Ski Championships.

4 x 5 km team (3 x 10 km: 1982-93)[edit]

Prior to 2009, this involved each team member taking two jumps from the ski jumping large hill. For each point difference between teams, there is one second between them at the start of the cross country part of the competition. From the 2005 event in Oberstdorf to the 2007-08 season, the point - time difference was 1 point equaling 1 second. The time differential from 2001 to 2004 was 1 point equaliing 1.5 seconds. For the 2009 championships, it involved each team member taking only one jump from the large hill with the point - time difference being 1 point equals 1.33 seconds.

1984 Extra World Championships in Rovaniemi, Finland as the team event was not on the program at the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo.

10 km individual large hill[edit]

Formerly the 7.5 km sprint, it was similar to the 15 km Individual Gundersen except competitors have only one jump from the ski jumping large hill instead of two jumps from the ski jumping normal hill. For the 2009 championships, the event was changed to a single jump from the large hill followed by 10 km of cross country skiing.[1][2]

10 km mass start[edit]

10 km cross country is run first with mass start. The winner receives 120 points with anyone finishing behind them losing 4 points for every second behind the winner. Two jumps from the normal hill are then done, based on distance with the K-points measurement. The winner is the one who earns the most points. This event was held at the 2009 championships only, being replaced by the 4 x 5 km team normal hill event.
