RAMSAU AM DACHSTEIN, Austria (AP) -- Norway dominated the Nordic combined World Cup team sprint Saturday, claiming the top-two spots ahead of Italy.

Norway 1 with Mikko Kokslien and Joergen Grabak was 11th after the jumping before finishing the 2x7.5-kilometer cross-country race in 33 minutes, 59.3 seconds.

Haavard Klemetsen and Magnus Krog of Norway 2 came 8.2 seconds back in second, edging the Italian team of Samuel Costa and Alessandro Pittin by 0.6.

Bryan Fletcher and Todd Lodwick of the United States placed fourth, 10.0 seconds off the lead.

The Estonian team of Kristian Ilves and Karl-August Tiirmaa upset the favorites to win the jumping discipline, but dropped to 18th overall after the cross-country segment.

The Nordic combined meet concludes Sunday with a Gundersen 10K event.
