Olympic Photo Of The Day: Celebration Slide

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Norway's Magnus Hovdal Moan (from left), Joergen Graabak, Magnus Krog and Haavard Klemetsen dive as they celebrate winning the gold medal of the Nordic combined large hill cross-country team competition at the Sochi Winter Olympics on Thursday in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia.

The sport features two events: Each team member has a jump on a large hill and is awarded points. The total of each team's points decides its start time for the second event, a 4x5-kilometer cross-country relay race.
