Japan fell behind and had to settle for fourth place in the Nordic combined men’s team event Saturday at the FIS Nordic Ski World Championships, failing in its bid to reach the podium for the first time in 10 years.

Team Japan, composed of brothers Akito and Yoshito Watabe, Hideaki Nagai and Go Yamamoto, started the 4×5-km relay in second place just 0.01 second off the lead after a solid ski jumping round.
