Slovenes are also very good in other winter sports, such as ski jumping where they have four male athletes among the top 20 and are currently a dominant team in team events. The same for ladies, they have six in top 20. + Great results in biathlon this season and in snowboarding. All that combined with Tina Maze's domination the Slovene Olympic team would likely be contenders for around 10 Olympic medals (2M population) if Sochi would start next week, so hoping that all of them keep their good form until next year
