The Nordic Combined Committee’s proposals were all confirmed by the FIS Council. The main decisions included new rules for the penalty race where the jumping will be conducted as Gundersen format jumping and the number of penalty laps will be determined based on point differences. The new jumping suit rules (common with Ski Jumping) also apply to Nordic Combined.
In addition, Infront Sports & Media presented positive TV numbers for last season with the peaks of the season taking place during weeks one and eight.
Through the Nordic Coordination Group, a good cooperation between cross-country Skiing, Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined is building up and concrete plans for the future are underway.
