King of Nordic Combined

Felix Gottwald, the Austrian nordic combined athlete, won three bronze medals in Salt Lake City 2002. In Torino he won silver in the opening Gundersen event before winning gold in the team event together with his team mates. Today he crossed the finishing line as Olympic Champion in the nordic combined sprint event.

This picture is from the ski jumping part of the team event. The event was canceled and rescheduled after the first round of the ski jumping competition, so we never got to see the Austrian team winning this event.
