You can say that again. All these athletes deserve our praise regardless of whether or not they're Jewish. The point is that they're Israelis and that's what counts.

1 bronze medal. WOW! So Israel is on a par with Togo. Stick with your national sport, which is talking bullshit. At that, Israelis excel.

sas ,   israel   (08.23.08)
we've wasted alot of money by sending over so many poor athletes to participate. i think that we need to re-evaluate the qualifications one needs to be sent over. some of our athletes have been an embarassment to the country.
11. #9 Yep. And he's Mizrahi to boot
Noa ,   Tel Aviv   (08.23.08)
Way to go Shahar Zuberi (Yemenite). We are so proud of you and they toasted you in the Tikvah shuk in south Tel Aviv! :)
12. Congratulations to Irina Risenzon
A. ,   Qyriat Ono   (08.23.08)
This girl is really a very strong person. She took all of her force to go on competing from herself, because her parents don't support her about anything. I was shocked with their interview. No pride, no emotion and no positive word to their daughter. Her mother even said "This is enough. No more Olympics, now she goes to University." They really don't know the meaning of going to an Olympic final... Brave Irina!!! You're a great one!!!
