Biography

At the 1924 Winter Olympics, Josef Bím competed quite successfully, particularly in the military ski patrol, finishing fourth with the Czechoslovakian team. At the 1925 World Championships he finished on eighth in ski jumping and an excellent fifth in Nordic combined. The following year he dropped to 23rd place in Nordic combined and did not finish the jumping event. At his second Olympic appearance in 1928, he competed only in jumping. At home, Bím won national titles in Nordic combined (1921) and jumping (1929). He died prematurely aged 33.
