Sagi Muki, Israeli judo champion who represented the country at the Olympics Sagi, has conquered another realm, becoming engaged to his longtime girlfriend on Monday.
Muki, a world champion in judo who also nabbed the bronze medal at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, got down on his knee in a flower-studded scene to pop the question to Natalie Luke, with who he has been in a relation with for three and a half years years.
Of course, she said yes, and the couple announced the engagement on their social m
In addition to his fame as an athlete, Muki has shown himself to be a fine human being.
During the coronavirus pandemic, he donated memorabilia, to raise NIS 250,000 for the Laniado Hospital in his hometown of Netanya, to help the medical center buy more ventilators to treat the seriously ill.
He also reached out to Iranian Judoka Saeid Mollaei, who had fled to his country to Germany after he was instructed by the Iranian authorities to withdraw from competing in the World Judo Championship, just to avoid a potential contest against Muki.
This incident has led the International Judo Federation to suspend the Iran Judo Federation (IJF) from all activities held by the international organization.
Now Muki has won Natalie's heart as well. We wish them well.
