On Thursday, Norway displayed dominance and secured the Nordic combined large hill/4x5km team gold at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games.

The Norwegian team consisting of Espen Bjornstad, Espen Andersen, Jens Luras Oftebro, and Joergen Graabak finished the cross-country race in 50 minutes and 45.1 seconds for the victory. 

By doing so, they secured Norway’s 14th gold at the Beijing Olympic Games 2022, breaking the record from the previous Winter Games in Pyeongchang. Canada won 14 golds in 2010, but no one has won more gold medals.

The gold is Graabak’s third medal in the Beijing Games, while Oftebro took his second medal. Bjørnstads was able to celebrate his first Olympic medal, while both Graabak and Andersen were present when the Norwegian team won the silver medal in 2018.

Germany took the silver medal with a time of 51:40.0. Japan won the bronze medal, and Austria finished fourth with a time of 51:44.7.
