Slovenia will be aiming to win their first winter Olympic gold at the 2014 Games in Sochi, having come so close in Vancouver four years ago.
Alpine skier Tina Maze won silver in both the giant slalom and super G. They were Slovenia's fifth and sixth medals in winter Olympic history, with the previous four being bronze.
At the 1994 Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer, alpine skiers Katja Koren and Alenka Dovzan both won bronze medals in the slalom and alpine combined events respectively, while Jure Kosir took out bronze in the men's slalom.
At the 2002 Salt Lake City Games, Slovenia won a fourth winter Olympic medal when Damjan Fras, Primoz Peterka, Robert Kranjec and Peter Zonta collected bronze in the ski jumping team event.
