Barcelona was a "double struggle" for Croatia's athletes: first, for the right to participate, which they gained when the Croatian Olympic Committee was recognised on 17 January 1992, despite the trials, which were already underway, and almost over in some sports, and also the struggle to achieve the best results possible, preferably win medals.
