The 37-person delegation, of which 11 are competing athletes, will leave Croatia next week, is smaller than 4 years ago when the Croatian delegation consisted of nineteen athletes in four sports in Vancouver, Canada in 2010. At this year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, which will take place from 7th to 23 February, Croatians will be vying for medals in Alpine skiing (8 – Ivica Kostelić, Natko Zrnčić Dim, Dalibor Šamšal, Filip Zubčić, Matej Vidović, Sebastian Brigović, Sofija Novoselić, Andrea Komšić.), Nordic skiing (2 – Vedrana Malec and Edi Dadić) and Snowboarding (1 – Morena Makar). Croatia won 3 medals (2 silvers and 1 bronze) at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Ivica Kostelić will be Croatia’s flag bearer at the games.
