Ok, I know this is way too early, but anyways I figured I'd start a thread for it?

Who is your country sending to the Olympics (but possible medalists in bold)?

Croatia:

Already Qualified/ Fullfilled "A" Norm:

Athletics - Ivana Brkljačić, Jurica Grabuši, Blanka Vlašić and Ivica Ergotić

Sailing - Karlo Kuret and Mate Arapov (good, but too inconsistent)

Swimming - Gordan Kožulj and Sanja Jovanović

Table Tennis - Tamara Boroš and Zoran Primorac (maybe a medalist, but I doubt it)

Archery - Mirela Skoko-Čelić

Rowing - Nikša and Siniša Skelin

Men's Handball Team

Qualifying/ Fullfiled "B" Norm:

Athletics - Nedžad Mulabegović

Swimming (Duje Draganje didn't even make this list, what a slump :o) - Nenad Buljan, Krešimir Čač, Anita Galić, Smiljana Marinović, Mario Delač, Aleksej Puninski (huge naturalized talent from Russia), Vanja Rogulj and Aleš Volčanšek

Men's Waterpolo Team - Qualifying in Brazil (hoping WC was a fluke :o)

Women's Handball Team - Qualifying at the World Cup in Croatia (must be in the top3)

Men's Boxing Team - Qualifying next month in Pula, Croatia

Kayak/Canoe Team - WC

Taekwondou Team -WC

Weightlifting - WC, we have the defending Olympic Champion

Tennis Players - Ivan Ljubicic should be in, possibly Mario Ancic and Karolina Sprem if they get their act together. Karlovic a possible WC and also Ljubicic/Ancic in doubles (Ivan told me they will be playing together from now on!!)

Soccer/Football Team (U-21) - Must be in the top3 at the European Championships

Men's Volleyball - Qualifyied for Qualifying :o (probably won't make it, but always possible)

+ more (others not listed in the article I was reading)
We sent 89 people to Sydney and we should easily send over 100 this year :woohoo: Not bad for a country with just over 4 million people :D

Our men's basketball, volleyball and water polo teams are surely going, I really hope both handball teams, women's volleyball and basketball teams make it too.

God, too many people to name for Australia probably.

btw, I'm pretty sure you're only allowed to nominate two players for the tennis (2 males and 2 female). So I don't think you could have Ancic, Karlovic and Ljubicic all playing singles.
