List of the greatest Olympic athletes from Slovakia, with photos when available. These are the best Slovakian Olympians of all time who have had the honor of representing their country at the prestigious Olympic games. Slovakian athletes from every era all have their place in the Olympic history books, but which Slovakian Olympian is the best of them all? You can decide who the greatest Olympic competitor from Slovakia is by how many medals they took back to their country, but that isn't the only factor that comes into play when considering who the best really is.

Athletes include everything from Marek Matiasko to Petra Pravlikova.

This list answers the questions, "Who is the best Slovakian Olympian of all time?" and "Who are the greatest Olympians from Slovakia?"

America, Russia and Great Britain have the most Olympic medals out of every country that has been represented in the Olympics, but it doesn't mean that Olympic competitors from other nations don't deserve accolades as well. Vote for your favorite Slovakia Olympic athletes on this list, and downvote the ones that you don't think had a huge impact on Slovakia.
