    Norway scores easy victory

     HAKUBA, Japan (AP) -- Norway ended Japan's reign as two-time Olympic champion in the team Nordic combined, giving Bjarte Engen Vik his second gold medal of the Nagano Games.
     Norway was so far ahead at the end that Fred Lundberg, the fourth leg in the 20-kilometer cross-country relay, was able to grab a Norwegian flag 400 meters from the finish and wave it in celebration as he crossed the line.
