Janica Kostelić (born 5 January 1982 in Zagreb) is a famous alpine ski racer, four-time Olympic gold medalist and five-time world champion from Croatia. Not only is she a three-time World Cup champion, but also the only woman to win four gold medals in alpine skiing at the Winter Olympics, and the only woman to win three alpine skiing gold medals in one Olympics.

Interesting Fact

Kostelić started skiing at the age of three and began training at nine years old, and quickly became successful and won several junior competitions. At the age of 16, she was selected for the Croatian Olympic team, but couldn't show herself due to a knee injury. Upon her return, Kostelić won the World Cup overall title, receiving a crystal globe, with eight further victories. At the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, the ski racer gave her star performance, thus taking three gold and one silver. These medals were the first ever in the history of Croatia's Olympic team.
