Former SLCC Students Set to Compete in Winter Olympics

As the 2018 Olympic Winter Games kick off in PyeongChang, Salt Lake Community College will be following closely the journey of two olympians: former SLCC students McRae Williams and Jerica Tandiman.

McRae Williams, a native of Park City, began skiing at a young age and has competed in the AFP World Tour, World Cup and X Games. He is a member of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard team, and is set to compete in Slopestyle Skiing this month.

Jerica Tandiman was first inspired to take up speed skating after watching athletes compete at the Utah Olympic Oval near her home during the 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah. Since then she's excelled and has competed in the World Junior Championships and World Cup, and will be competing in two events in South Korea.

Best of luck to these former Bruins on their Olympic journey!
