Combined jumping and skiing yields another medal

CORRECTED: Norway was still leading the total medals count at the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Oslo on Monday, not least after the men’s team competition in combined ski jumping and a skiing relay.

Magnus Moan of Norway even provided a bit of hope for a gold medal, but it ended with bronze for Moan and his teammates Mikko Kokslien, Håvard Klemetsen and Jan Schmid.

Austria won again, claiming its fourth gold medal during Ski-VM 2011, followed by Germany with the silver.

Austria’s victory tied its haul of gold medals with Norway’s, with four each as of Monday evening. Austria also has one silver and one bronze, for a total of six medals in the world championships so far, followed by Germany with four.

Norway had eight medals as of Monday evening: Four in gold, two in silver and two in bronze.

NOTE TO READERS: An angry reader made it clear that the original version of this short story contained several errors, and for that we apologize profusely. Photos provided by Oslo 2011 rarely identify their subjects, so we confused the Norwegian and Austrian teams, although that’s no excuse. A results listing from Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) showing France in first place also was misinterpreted. Again, we apologize for these errors made at the end of a very busy news day, and will try to do a better job.
