Morena MAKAR (CRO)

Morena Makar will be Croatia’s first freestyle Olympic snowboarder, after qualifying for both the halfpipe and slopestyle.

Her results to date mean that she’s unlikely to be leaving Sochi with a medal, but she’ll no doubt give both events all she’s got. Plus she’s getting snowboarding noticed in her home country – check out the interview below (if you understand Croatian).
