Continuing the strong tradition of Dartmouth skiers competing on the U.S. Cross Country Team, Ida Sargent’s four years of hard work on the international level netted her a place in her first Olympics at Sochi 2014.

In addition to her Olympic debut, Sargent’s 2014 season featured three scoring results on the World Cup circuit, including a ninth in the 10k classic mass start in Szklarska Poreba, Poland. The Vermont native tacked that onto a strong 2013 that included three top 10s in team sprints, three top 10s in individual sprints, and two top 20s in distance races on the World Cup circuit. She was also a member of the 2013 World Championships team.

In 2011 she finished fourth in the freestyle sprint at U23 World Championships and earned a berth on the World Championships squad. She also skied three impressive seasons at Dartmouth, leading the Big Green to undefeated carnival seasons in 2009 and 2010.

Sargent is part of a growing group of U.S. contenders in women’s cross country, and should factor in to next year’s World Championship squad.

It was an awesome winter to be apart 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 as the youngest in a family of nordic skiers, so 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 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.
