KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia -- Normal hill gold medalist Eric Frenzel has a cold and a high temperature and is considered only a "50-50" chance of competing in Tuesday's large hill final in Nordic combined at the Sochi Olympics.
A member of the German team told Olympic officials Monday that a decision on whether Frenzel would compete would be delayed until Tuesday. Frenzel has seven wins in 11 World Cup meets this season.
The 25-year-old Frenzel did not participate in any of the three ski jumping training rounds Monday at the RusSki Gorki Jumping Center.
