Nicolas Collin is the new Combined star

Nicolas Collin was #10 and #12 in the last two Lead events in China. Including also relatively good results in Speed at the same time as only a dozen Combined athletes competed in China, the Belgian was #6 overall. Most probably this will mean a new life for the 20-year-old and full nurse student as he will get an Olympic candidate salary from the state.

How can you explain your very good results in China?
It was easier to go to the semi because the low number of participants. I am better in onsight compared to flash. I was also well prepared.

What is your goal now for 2019?
it is special, haha. I still do not know what to think about that? I am super happy of this #6 place because the season was really long for me. It was also my first year in the university so it was hard to manage both competition and study. My shape varied a lot so the system of calculation just the two bet results was good for me.

My goals for next year is to reach a final in Boulder and Lead and also to go under 7 seconds in Speed. I will finish my exam in May so I will go to Innsbruck for training in June.
