Having won an international cross-country skiing competition in Chamonix in 1914, Kléber Balmat then served as a mountain infantryman on the Russian front during World War I. For the Winter Olympic Games in Chamonix, he qualified for cross-country and jumping, and eventually competed in jumping and Nordic combined.
