Tara Geraghty-Moats Sells Her Team USA Jacket Online. Why We Think It’s Big Deal

Newsfeed, Trivia
Tara Geraghty-Moats is the world's best Nordic Combiner. She's also a unique, out-of-mold personality who likes to do things differently. Case in point: Tara just put a bunch of her Team USA cloths on sale via Poshmark, sort of fancy eBay meets VSCO where you follow stars & influencers and could buy clothing they no longer need. Wanting to own a memento directly from your favorite star is one those basic human needs that could be traced through millennia. Finally somebody in the skiing world is giving fans a chance. Well done , Tara, for trailblazing there - once again.

Newsfeed, Trivia
...She could have been among the best skiers at the world stage by now, with stadiums roaring her name. Instead she chose a different stage entirely... A few years ago Johanna Albertsson was among the most promising young skiers not only in her native Sweden, but, by extension, in the entire elite youth skiing.

It finally happened! Sergey Ustiugov bent his knee and proposed to his long-term girlfriend Elena Soboleva. Ustiugov, double world champion -2017 and TdS winner, does not need much presentation.
