Russia's Viacheslav Barkov won the Nordic combined men's individual Gundersen normal hill and 10 kilometres cross-country event at the 2017 Winter Universiade here in Almaty today.
Barkov finished fourth in the ski jumping element at the Sunkar International Ski Jumping Complex which placed him 58sec behind leader Go Yamamoto of Japan.
Yamamoto endured a disastrous cross-country stage though, surrendering his lead to finish in fifth overall in a time of 25 mins 10.4sec.
Barkov went on to overturn the deficit and claimed victory in the 10km cross-country race at the Alatau Cross-Country Skiing & Biathlon Complex.
The 24-year old, who studies at the Moscow State Humanitarian University, concluded the competition with an overall time of 24:26.5.
Adam Cieslar of Poland took second in 24:27.5 while his compatriot, Pawel Slowiok, rounded out the podium.
Cieslar improved upon his third place in the ski jumping, also overtaking Yamamoto.
Most impressive though was Slowiok, who started the cross-country race 1:19 seconds off the Japanese.
Slowiok crossed the line in an overall time of 24:34.3.
The heavy snow here in Almaty caused the postponement of the ski jumping and cross-country elements yesterday before being rescheduled for today.
