Mirko Miočic (July 23, 1956 - May 15, 2017) had been a Chaser in Potjera, the Croatian version of The Chase since November 2013 when the show premiered, until March 2016.
Once on his penultimate episode on March 3, 2016, he failed to catch a full house with six steps in the Final Chase round. In 2005, he was a contestant in the Croatian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and won 32,000 kuna, which is the same amount that Dean Kotiga had won in November 2006.
In March 2016, he leaves the show due to health problems, and had planned to return to fall in 2017, which did not happen as he died in the Zadar hospital after his condition was worsened on May 15, 2017. He was 61 years old. For the memory of Mirko, his episode that was aired on March 3, 2015, was repeated on the day of his death. He had caught the team with 18 steps with only 1 second remaining, which is the highest amount of steps ever caught by a Croatian Chaser.Krešimir Međeral-Sučević repeated this feat and also caught 18 steps with only 1 second remaining on September 2018.
