Nordic combined sees athletes combine ski jumping and cross-country skiing. They compete as individuals in normal hill and large hill disciplines - and also as a team.
The German picked up a bronze in Vancouver in 2010 in the team event and took a step forward in Sochi in 2014 when securing gold on the normal hill and a team silver.
With 12 medals at World Championships also in his collection, Frenzel will be the man everyone fears in PyeongChang 2018.
