Lee Academy alum earns Olympic bronze for Serbia

Another Maine connection to the Summer Olympics has emerged.

Lee Academy alumnus Mihailo “Michael” Vasic is a member of Serbia’s 3×3 men’s basketball team that this week captured the bronze medal in the inaugural edition of that sport as an Olympic event in Tokyo.

Serbia went 7-0 in pool play during the tournament, then lost to the Russian Olympic Committee in the semifinals before defeating Belgium 21-10 in the bronze-medal match — with Vasic scoring the game-ending basket.
