Description:
The Czech Republic competed at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway.It was the first Winter Games since the dissolution of Czechoslovakia, and so the Czech Republic and Slovakia competed as independent teams.

Cross-country skier Pavel Benc was the flag-bearer of the country in the opening ceremony – he thus have a chance to lead the last Winter Olympic Czechoslovak team in Albertville and the first ever Czech team in Albertville.

Although the three medals won by Czechoslovakia in Albertville in 1992 were all won by Czech athletes, the result of Lillehammer Olympics were less satisfying as fifth places of ice hockey and Nordic combined teams were the Czech Republic’s best results. It can be explained with the growth of competition as the former Soviet Union countries entered their athletes (only Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia participated in the 1992 Winter Olympics besides the Unified Team).
