Frenzel storms to Olympic gold in Nordic Combined

13 February 2014

NORDIC COMBINED: Germany's Eric Frenzel has kept his cool amid spring-like temperatures to storm to Olympic gold in the Nordic Combined.

Starting first after winning Wednesday morning's ski jumping on the normal hill, Frenzel took the lead in the 10km cross country ski phase with only Akito Watabe of Japan for company.

With temperatures of 12 degrees Celsius at the RusSki Gorki Ski Centre, Watabe gamely kept up with Frenzel but had no match for his final sprint.

Frenzel, who won a bronze in the team event in Vancouver 2010, finished in 23 minutes 50.2 seconds with Watabe in second on 23min 54.4sec. Norway's Magnus Krog took the bronze in 23sec 58.3min.
