The 2018 winter Olympics are upon us and Croatia will be represented by 19 athletes across four sports: alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, bobsled and luge.



CroatiaWeek has put together a list of Croatian athletes competing in their respected winter sports, which will be without a Kostelić sibling for the first time since the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. During the 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi, Ivica Kostelić was the only Croatian to medal; taking the silver in the men’s combined alpine skiing event.

    Any potential medalists?

    Istok Rodeš and Ida Štimac were good in the junior competitions, and these Kolega brothers are being trained by Kostelic’s dad.

    Popovic just biffed it hard in the slalom. Her arm got caught on a gate. Hope she’s alright..
