Nordic Combined - Individual Gundersen (15km)

Georg Hettich of Germany defended his lead after the ski jumping portion with a race of 39:44.6 to record Germany's second gold medal at the Olympics, in the second event.

Silver medallist Felix Gottwald of Austria and bronze medallist Magnus Moan of Norway both managed to beat Hettich by more than a minute in the cross-country leg, but after eleventh and ninth place respectively in the ski jumping leg, their cross-country skiing was not enough to take them to the very top of the podium. Moan beat compatriot Petter Tande in a dash for the finish line, while Finn Jaakko Tallus is a further second behind.
