Ljubljana (Slovenia), July 4 (IANS) Slovenia will send 64 athletes to London for the 2012 Olympics and expects to win seven medals.
The 64-strong team consists of 28 men and 36 women. Besides, a team of 54 coaches, six doctors, five physiotherapists and two sports psychologists will join the athletes, Janez Kocijancic, president of the Slovenian Olympic Committee, told reporters here Tuesday.
The Slovenian sports authorities are apparently optimistic about the athletes’ performance.
“I predicted a result better than the Beijing Olympics, where we took five medals. I think number seven is realistic, a result we can achieve,” said Bogdan Gabrovec, leader of the Slovenian team.
