Description

The IOC offers the following Video News Release to all news agencies, broadcasters and online news platforms free of charge.

Women’s Nordic combined made its debut at the Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) on Saturday (January 18) and the best female nordic combined athlete in the world was there to witness it.

American Tara Geraghty-Moats is in no doubt what a huge step forward it is for the sport to be included in the programme at the Winter YOG Lausanne 2020.

The 26-year-old is one of the Athlete Role Models (ARMs) appointed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Lausanne and she said: “I’m here to help support the Youth Olympians and help support the Olympic spirit, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the women’s Nordic combined in the event because this is the first time that the Games will have complete gender parity, gender equality and that will be a really monumental moment to watch, it will be Olympic history in the making. And there’ll also be so many other moments that are Olympic history in the making and I can’t wait to be inspired by all the young athletes.”
