(AP) The International ski federation has announced the course-setters for the Alpine events at the Sochi Olympics.


Croatian coach Ante Kostelic will set the final run of the men's slalom, and the slalom part of the super-combined.


Kostelic, the father of former overall champions Ivica and Janica, has made a name for setting challenging courses by placing gates in unusual spots. A year ago at a World Cup slalom in Kitzbuehel, Austria, the jury rejected a course set by Kostelic, deeming it as "unskiable."


The course setters for all races except for downhill, which will be done by FIS officials, are coaches from different nations who were drawn randomly during World Cup events in St. Moritz and Kranjska Gora.


Alpine skiing at the Olympics starts with the men's downhill on Sunday.
