The History of Nordic Combined in FISU

Nordic combined is one of the oldest Winter Universiade disciplines. Its history goes back to the traditional International Winter Weeks which were held in 1951 in Bad Gastein, 1953 in Saint Moritz, 1955 in Yugoslavia, 1957 in Oberammergau and 1959 in Zell am See. Nordic combined had its premiere at the first edition of the Winter Universiade in Chamonix, France, in 1960. From the 3rd edition of the Winter Universiade (1964) in Spindleruv Mlyn (CZE) onwards, the new rules of FIS to calculate the points for Nordic combined have been applied. Until today’s competitions Soviet and Japanese students have kept showing their international class. We must not forget to mention still active athlete Georg HETTICH (GER) who participated in the 2005 Winter Universiade in Innsbruck and won the gold medal; he then reached the 1st place in Gundersen and the 3rd place in Sprint at the 2006 OWG in Torino. Many others Olympians also participated in Winter Universiades. So far, Nordic combined has been 23 times in the Winter Universiade programme since 1960. This exciting snow sport has shifted from the Winter Universiade to the Championships sports programme bringing more winter sports to the WUCs while still being available as optional Universiade sport. Now it can bring all thrills and excitement of ski jumping combined with cross country skiing to cities that have a jumping hill but don’t necessary have all the facilities for hosting a Winter Universiade.
