For the last five years, University of Montana sprinter Alex Mustard has been representing the Grizzlies on the track, and now he has set his sights even higher, to represent Montana and the United States on the U.S. Olympic Bobsled Team.
KGVO News spoke with Mustard just after his winning ‘Olympic Hopefuls’ performance was broadcast on KECI-TV, several months after it happened.
“That event in July was filmed by NBC producers,” said Mustard. “There were six sports represented and each sport picked one athlete that they named as their next Olympic hopeful and I was very lucky to be picked as the next Olympic hopeful for the sport of Bobsled. The competition was in July and it just aired this past weekend, so I had to keep it under wraps for the past six months.
