Olympic Photo Of The Day: Celebration Slide

Norway's Magnus Hovdal Moan (from left), Joergen Graabak, Magnus Krog and Haavard Klemetsen dive as they celebrate winning the gold medal of the Nordic combined large hill cross-country team competition at the Sochi Winter Olympics on Thursday in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia.

The sport features two events: Each team member has a jump on a large hill and is awarded points. The total of each team's points decides its start time for the second event, a 4x5-kilometer cross-country relay race.
