His professional career seemed to be in no doubt, but this famous Mormon celebrity instead returned to the country of his birth and instead led Yugoslavia to success in the Olympics and nationally.

On the side of the LDS Church, this celebrity Mormon was able to use his status in assisting with the establishment of missions in the country, allowing limited access for Mormon missionaries to preach to the people of the nation.
