In Nordic Combined the athletes compete in both cross-country skiing and ski jumping. Until the 1950s, the cross-country race was held first, followed by the ski jumping. This was reversed as the difference in the cross-country race tended to be too big to overcome in ski jumping.
 
The sport was included at the Chamonix 1924 Olympic Winter Games and has been on the programme ever since.
