Tara Geraghty-Moats (West Fairlee, Vt.) stepped onto the podium, finishing second, at the inaugural Ladies’ Nordic Combined Summer Grand Prix in Oberwiesenthal, Germany, Saturday. 

"It was a dream come true to finally be able to compete in women’s nordic combined on an international level,” said Geraghty-Moats after winning the 5k roller ski following her fourth-place result in the jumping portion. "I’m using this weekend to learn the level I have to be at to have success in combined."

Russia's Stefaniya Nadymova won after scoring 102 points in the Individual Gundersen and then holding off a charging Geraghty-Moats by three seconds in the 5k roller ski for the victory. Germany's Jenny Nowak was third.

"I made some mistakes today and learned a lot but I came away with a good result and having had a huge amount of fun competing with small but strong field," Geraghty-Moats added.

In the men's team event, Austria's Franz-Josef Rehrl and Mario Seidl took the victory. For Team USA, Ben Loomis (Eau Claire, Wis.) and Jasper Good (Steamboat Springs, Colo.) finished 11th.
