Chappuis of France wins Nordic Combined event



KLINGENTHAL, Germany (AP) — Jason Lamy Chappuis of France won a Nordic combined event on Sunday to extend his overall World Cup lead.

The ski jumping portion had to be called off because of snow and wind and the officials used the results of a training jump from Friday, where Chappuis was 11th. But the Frenchman worked his way up the field in the 10-kilometer cross-country race to finish 15 seconds ahead of Bernhard Gruber of Austria. Tomas Slavik of the Czech Republic was 16 seconds back.

Chappuis leads the overall standings with 1,163 points, ahead of Akito Watabe of Japan with 925.
