Geraghty-Moats wins World Cup event

RAMSAU, AUSTRIA—West Fairlee resident Tara Geraghty-Moats realized a childhood dream on Friday when she bested 31 other competitors to win the first ever women’s FIS World Cup Nordic combined meet in Ramsau, Austria.
Geraghty-Moats was sixth after the jumping segment of the competition, but she took the top spot on the World Cup podium by reeling in Norway’s Gyda Westvold Hansen over the 5K cross-country ski race that made up the second part of the event. Considering Geraghty-Moats’ amazing journey to the top of the heap in women’s Nordic combined, two words come to mind: perseverance and dedication.
