Japan's Ayane Miyazaki has become the first-ever female International Ski Federation (FIS) Nordic Combined junior world champion after winning today in Lahti.
Miyazaki won in the Finnish city despite heavy snow throughout the five kilometre race cross-country race.
She crossed the line with a time of 17min 43.8sec, in front of Norway's Gyda Westvold Hansen in 17:47.4.
Miyazaki's compatriot Anju Nakamura finished third in 18:02.3.
The Japanese athlete had earlier recorded a distance of 87.5 metres in the ski jumping round, enough for a third-place finish which put her 22 seconds behind Austrian leader Lisa Hirner.
"First, I was a little bit nervous about today as the competition was a bit different and the weather was really bad but then I decided to change my attitude and be more positive about today," Miyazaki said.
"I think it's because of that that I received a medal today.
"Winning still came as a big surprise and I am so pleased about it."
Women's Nordic combined is not an Olympic discipline and nor is there a senior FIS World Cup circuit.
Germany's Julian Schmid won the men's 5km Gundersen competition in 13:43.0, beating Austria's Johannes Lamparter who finished 5.3sec behind the leader.
Norway's Jens Luraas Oftebro, the jumping leader, came third after recording a time of 13:56.5.
Schmid was the third best jumper but only started two seconds adrift.
