Chappuis claims combined gold, US skiers 5th and 6th


ChappuisThe Americans gave it a hard chase, but in the end were unable to overcome relatively poor jumping performances as Frenchman Jason Lamy Chappuis claimed the large hill Nordic Combined World Championship in Oslo, Norway Wednesday (March 2).

Second after the jumping leg, Chappuis quickly moved past jump leader Haavard Klemetsen of Norway in the 10k pursuit race then out legged silver medalist Johannes Rydzek and bronze medalist Eric Frenzel, both of Germany for the gold. Frenzel completed his cycle of medals by adding the bronze to a gold won on the normal hill and silver in the team event.

For Chappuis the gold marked a completed cycle as well, as a world championship was the last major crown he needed for a complete resume. He won the Olympic normal hill gold and the World Cup title last season.

The Americans showed the strength they have become known for but couldn’t quite overcome the jump leads of the top group. Todd Lodwick finished fifth and Bill Demong, the defending champion, finished sixth.
