Rocky Mountain Student Competes in Olympics

Posted: Updated:

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.

Vulkovic says, "I really like my country and it's something special when you're on international television. Everyone's watching you compete for your country."
