2014 Winter Olympic nordic combined predictions

See also

At the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, one sport will stick out over all of the others. That is because nordic combined will be the only sport at the Olympic Winter Games which will be competed by men only and not women. According to nordicjumpworld.com on Thursday, there is one German man who could win three Olympic gold medals.

His name is Eric Frenzel and he could be a German star at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. He is currently the World Cup leader in the normal hill and large hill nordic combined events, and is the world champion in the large hill.

Frenzel is also the hottest nordic combined athlete at the moment. In one weekend recently from January 17-19 in Seefeld, Austria, Franzel won all three normal hill competitions. He followed the single weekend trifecta with a victory in Oberstdorf, Germany on January 26.

Nordic combined also holds another distinction because it is the only sport that will not be participated by any of the 221 Canadian athletes who will be attending the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

Here are my nordic combined predictions:

Normal Hill (February 12)

Gold--Eric Frenzel--Germany
Silver--Haavard Klemetsen--Norway
Bronze--Magnus Moan--Norway

Large Hill (February 18)

Gold--Eric Frenzel--Germany
Silver--Akito Watabe--Japan
Bronze--Jason Lamy Chappuis--France

Team (February 20)

Gold--Germany
Silver--Norway
Bronze--France
