Biography

During his international career (1986-1994), Matjaž Zupan never managed to win a major competition, although he was close in front of his home crowd in Planica, placing second in a World Cup competition. That same year, he placed just outside the podium on the Large Hill at the World Championships. Zupan’s greatest success came the next season, winning an Olympic silver medal with the Yugoslavian team in Calgary. Following the break-up of Yugoslavia, he competed for Slovenia. A four-time national champion (1989-1992), he retired after the 1994 season. He has since embarked on a coaching career, first as assistant coach of the Slovenian team, later as head coach. His greatest coaching successes include the 2005 world title for Rok Benkovič and a team bronze at the 2002 Winter Games.
