Ljubljana, 29 August - Former ski jumping world champion Franci Petek will head Team Slovenia at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. Petek said he was feeling rather nostalgic after being appointed team head by the Slovenian Olympic Committee on Tuesday, as he was the first athlete to bear the flag of independent Slovenia at the 1992 Olympics.
