In the early years, Scandinavian countries dominated the sport. The U.S. men finally won Nordic combined Olympic medals in 2010, when Billy Demong, Johnny Spillane, Todd Lodwick, and Brett Camerota dominated competition and came away with gold and silver medals in all three events (large hill, normal hill, and the team relay).
Taylor Fletcher was also on the 2010 U.S. Olympic Team. At the time he was 19 years old and finished 45th in the large hill competition. Fast forward a dozen years and the 31-year-old made his fourth U.S. Olympic team by winning 2022 U.S. Olympic Team Trials on Christmas Eve. He headlines the U.S. Nordic combined team of five men heading to the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022.
Here’s a look at the men on the 2022 U.S. Olympic Nordic Combined and Ski Jumping teams.
