Slovenia will be represented by 17 athletes, they will compete in athletics, goalball, table tennis, swimming and shooting. They all comply with the stringent domestic and international standards and most of them have won medals in important international championships. Along with coaches and the management team Slovenians will have a small but important role in this year’s manifestation of the greatest sports event in the world for the disabled.
Overall preparations are being carried out by the Sports Federation for the Disabled of Slovenia with the help of other organisations for the disabled, the Olympic Committee of Slovenia, sports clubs, health-care institutions, companies, sponsors and other organisations. We are also very appreciative of help from many individuals but, unfortunately, the space available in this publication does not allow us to mention them all. The organisations and individuals have enabled the preparations of the athletes and acquisition of equipment similar to the equipment that will be used by Slovenian athletes in this year’s Olympic games, which will take place at the same venue three weeks prior to the Paralympic Games.
