Rocky Mountain College Skier Headed to Olympics

BILLINGS -

The Winter Olympics are just 100 days away. One Rocky Mountain College freshman is actually competing in the Olympics.

Andrija Vukovic is a 19-year-old Olympic skier for his home country of Serbia. He is one of two skiers competing for his country. He started skiing in Serbia as a child and competed across Europe.

But now, he's also a skier on the Rocky Mountain College ski team. He came to Montana because he could both ski and study at the same time. He says being chosen to represent Serbia is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

"I really like my country and it's something special when you're on national television everyone watches you compete for your country," Vukovic said.

Vukovic is heading out to Sochi, Russia in late January. He says he does not expect to win any medals, but will give it all he's got.
