Eric Frenzel to compete despite virus

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia -- 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 told The Associated Press that Frenzel, 25, 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 he was only "50-50" for the final and had a high temperature.

Frenzel also could 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 medalist Austria and the United States.
