Slovakia was once part of Czechoslovakia that competed at the Winter Olympic Games from 1924 up to 1990. When the dissolution of Czechoslovakia materialized in 1993, Slovakia started competing as a separate nation in 1994 and has sent athletes to all Winter Olympics since then.
Slovakia won it's first Winter Olympics medal in 2006 with Radoslav Židek winning silver in the Men's snowboard cross. The first gold medal came four years later, when Anastasiya Kuzmina won the Women's sprint Biathlon event.
Slovakia won three medals at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang thanks to biathlete Anastasiya Kuzmina. She was first in the Women's mass start, and second in the Women's pursuit and Women's individual events.
Anastasiya Kuzmina is Slovakia's most successful Winter Olympic athlete, with a career total of three golds and three silvers.
