It came the end of the one great skiing career, Natko Zrnčić-Dim said goodbye to skiing on his slope, Sljeme.

Even though he skied his last official race on Krvavec, Slovenia, Natko Zrnčić-Dim said his final goodbye on Sljeme cheered by his faithful friends, family and participants of the traditional race between Zagreb and Celje.

Winner of the bronze medal from World Championships in Val d'Isere 2009, five times on the podium in the World Cup races (combined and super combined) with his best result from Chamonix 2011 - second place. Ivica and Natko singing national anthem 'Lijepa naša' after winning first and second place in Chamonix will remain in our memories.

- Best moment of my career was winning of the bronze medal in World Championships and I will always remember that. But I also have to mention 2011, when Ivica and I were first and second, double win in Chamonix, what was really big sporting result for one non alpine country, said Natko.

On the wings of that successes some young guns grew up and ahead of them is bright future and Natko was sent off to his, well deserved, 'pension'.
Thank you Natko for all your successes and unforgettable moments and we wish you luck in your new life adventures.
