Croatian bobsledders are on track to participate in the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver that will be held from 12 to 28 February.
After American Cup qualifications, the four-man bobsled team of Ivan Sola, Slaven Krajacic, Mate Mezulic, Igor Maric and Andras Haklits is ranked 27th. Thirty teams will have the right to compete in the Olympic Games.
The Croats still have one more race on 17 January in Cesana, Italy, in which they will compete against Serbia, Liechtenstein and Japan, teams that have very little chance to go to Vancouver.
The Croatian Olympic Committee believes 18 Croatian athletes will take part in the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in different events.
