One of a handful of New Englanders competing for the U.S. Cross Country Team, Ida Sargent skied at Dartmouth for three years before making her U.S. Team debut in 2011.

Sargent continued her strong skiing in 2013 with several impressive results on the World Cup circuit, including three top-10s in team sprints, two top-10s in individual sprints and two top-20s in distance races. She was also a member of the 2013 World Ski Championships team. The Vermont native capped her year by becoming the runner-up at the SuperTour Finals in the 1km classic sprint.

Sargent scored her first World Cup points only a year ago. In 2011 she finished fourth in the freestyle sprint at U23 World Championships and earned a berth on the World Championships squad. Before that she skied three impressive seasons at Dartmouth, leading the Big Green to undefeated seasons in 2009 and 2010.

Sargent is part of a strong group of U.S. women skiing towards Sochi; a group that hopes to be the first American women to win an Olympic cross country medal.

It was an awesome winter to be a part of U.S. Skiing, and I had a blast chasing goals while racing and training with my teammates. I made some big improvements in my own skiing this season and I'm looking forward to seeing where our momentum takes us next year!  

Sargent grew up in Vermont and was the youngest in a family of nordic skiers. So it’s no surprise that her parents put her on skis about as soon as she could walk. Not long after she started racing, she fell in love with the sport and hasn’t looked back.

Sargent has done a balancing act with skiing and college, studying biology and psychology at Dartmouth College. She reached a major milestone with her graduation last spring. She would like to become a physical therapist at some point after she's finished ski racing. Her off-hill hobbies include running, biking, canoeing, reading, gardening and drinking maple syrup.
