A new event on the championship calendar the team competition had first been held at the 1982 World Championships in Norway. The inaugural championship had been unique in that it was the only one that had not been won by Finland but the performances of Matti Nykänen over the past week had only served to enhance Finnish chances. Before the Games began Austria and Norway appeared to have the strongest chances of upsetting Finland but the performances of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslav jumpers in the individual events threatened to change this perception.

Nykänen’s contribution proved the deciding influence on the competition as his brilliance was enough to give Finland the win over a Yugoslav quartet who showed more consistency throughout the team. One day after becoming the first man to win two ski jumping golds at one Olympics he took his third of the Calgary Games.
