VAL DI FIEMME, Italy (AP) Norway won a second successive Nordic Combined team sprint as Jorgen Graabak and Jan Schmid edged out Germany and Austria on Saturday.

The duo was third in the ski jump, and the German pair of Manuel Faisst and Fabian Riessle second just behind Bernhard Gruber and Sepp Schneider of Austria.

However, another third place in the cross country was enough to hand Graabak a second win, after his victory in Finland with Haavard Klemetsen.

Germany was second overall, 0.9 seconds behind Norway, with Austria third, 1.6 behind Graabak and Schmid.


Austria's second team and France were joint quickest in the cross country, putting them fourth and fifth respectively.
