Mediterranean Games Tunis 2001

The 2001 Mediterranean Games in Tunis, held from 2 – 15 September, should have been the usual XIV Mediterranean Games, but they were marked by the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers in New York, so this is why there was just a symbolic Closing Ceremony on 15 September, without the planned artistic program. The Croatian Mediterranean Games delegation consisted of 138 athletes, led by Chef de Mission Darko Dujmović. 23 countries participated and Croatian athletes won 20 medals - 7 gold, 6 silver and 7 bronze – so that Croatia placed 11th in the medal count.
