I think we're successful across quite a wide variety of sports, immensely so when compared to our population size. The bottom line is that Slovenia over perform in winter sports, we over perform in summer sports. If winter sports were more popular here then we'd also over perform in them (better funding for coaching, better participation, better facilities etc).
But they aren't that's the point.

Obviously a country with 60 million people would do better than one with 2 million people.
