Yo, Adrian! Serbian Village Erects Statue of Rocky

Meet The Team

    BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) - When a statue is erected in the town
    square, it's usually one of the founders, or a military hero. But in a poor village in Serbia, it's Rocky Balboa.

    The village, Zitiste, which is north of Belgrade, has unveiled a 10-foot
    bronze and concrete monument featuring the gutsy fictional fighter
    portrayed by Sylvester Stallone.

    Locals say they wanted to change the image of their town, which
    has gained a reputation for being disaster-prone after being hit by
    floods and mudslides. A local official says now the town is known for something else.
