Nordic combined might just be the most obscure of obscure sports: It’s a combination of ski jumping and cross-country skiing. In fact, it’s the only winter Olympic sport in which women still do not compete (but that’s a different story for a different episode).
To better understand Nordic combined, we’re joined by U.S. Olympian Bryan Fletcher, who’s set to embark on his second Olympics at PyeongChang 2018. He talks with us about how the sport works and what to look for at this Olympics.
Plus news on future Winter Olympic bids, an invite to our Fantasy Olympian league and an update on our broadcast schedule during PyeongChang 2018.
Now, you will notice that Jill makes a most excellent joke that our dear guest doesn’t quite get. This commercial can’t be that old, can it?
