If you’ve tuned into the Winter Olympics at any point since the turn of the century, chances are you’ll know the name ‘Kostelic’. Between the Olympics and the Championships, Ivica and Janica have earned more than 20 medals between them. Gnothi Seauton (Know Thyself) spans 23 years of the Kostelics’ struggles and victories as skiers. The siblings were raised in Croatia, where they faced two basic problems: snow and money. A complete lack of either turned out to be no obstacle for the determined pair. Ante Kostelic coached his children from a young age, continuing throughout the poverty of the Croatian War, when the family lived in a tent in the woods. Both went on to international success that was blighted by severe injury. After a terrible accident on the slopes that had the potential to end her career, Janica found the strength to recover and went on to win a record-breaking four gold medals. Ivica’s career has shared his sister’s ups and downs. Skiing enthusiasts will enjoy watching the Kostelics in action, but this motivational biopic is relevant to anyone fighting back to be the best they can be.
