KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) -- Normal hill gold medal winner Eric Frenzel of Germany will start Tuesday's Nordic combined large hill final despite a virus.

German Olympic team spokesman Christian Klaue tells The Associated Press that the 25-year-old Frenzel was still not 100 percent but would attempt to finish the ski jumping component and the following 10-kilometer cross-country race.

On Monday, team officials had warned that he was only ''50-50'' for the final and had a high temperature.

Frenzel could also still compete in Thursday's team event. He was a member of the bronze medal-winning German team in Vancouver four years ago that finished behind gold medalists Austria and second-place the United States.
