Alumni Pride: Virbitsky wins gold with Olympic internship

As the world watches snowboarders defy gravity and ice dancers twirl in perfect unison this month, former University of Wisconsin Oshkosh scholar-athlete Vanessa Virbitsky ’08, will enjoy her own Olympic moment in Vancouver.

The UW Oshkosh spring 2008 commencement class speaker will serve as a press officer for the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, which begin Feb. 12.

Virbitsky, who recently served a six-month internship at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., is taking a break from her master’s degree studies at Ball State in Muncie, Ind., to attend the games.
