As the Israeli lineup for this summer's Olympics grows, only time will tell if Israel will bring home a medal this year.
So far 30 Israeli athletes have guaranteed a spot on the Olympic team for Rio de Janeiro, with the judokas seen as having the best chance to win a medal.
The first Israeli to meet the qualifying criteria for this summer’s games was Yakov Toumarkin, who finished seventh in London in 2012 in the 200-meter backstroke and set an Israeli record. Toumarkin qualified a year ago.
Freestyle wrestler Ilana Kratysh (pictured above) was the most recent to qualify after winning the World Qualification Tournament in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, last Saturday. She will be the first woman wrestler to represent Israel in the Olympics.
