Croatia to Send 22 Para Athletes to Tokyo Paraylympics

ZAGREB, 16 July 2021 - The Croatian Paralympic Committee (HPO) has concluded its list of athletes for the 16th summer Paralympics in Tokyo from 24 August to 5 September, with 22 para athletes participating in various para sports. 

The Croatian flag will be carried by Mikela Ristoski at the opening ceremony. The long jumper won a gold medal in Rio de Janeiro and a bronze medal in London.

Ahead of concluding the final list of athletes to travel to Tokyo, HPO president Ratko Kovačič said that "since Croatia's independence para-athletes have competed in seven summer paralympic games and won 20 medals."

We expect that with very strong epidemiological measures in Tokyo, they will continue their success in winning medals. Finally, all we can do is hope they achieve the result they did in Rio de Janeiro when we won five medals, said Kovačić.
