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.
