Israeli Swimmers Bag Gold

Two Israelis entered the pool at the recent European Paralympic Championships in Dublin, Ireland, and climbed back out gold medalists. The Times of Israel's Michael Bachner tells us about Inbal Pezaro and Ami Dadaon, who swam their way to wins and made the Jewish state proud in the process:

Israeli swimmers won two gold medals Monday in the European Paralympic championship held in Dublin, Ireland.

Veteran athlete Inbal Pezaro, 31, came first in her 200 meter freestyle final with a time of 2:54.91 minutes, barely edging out Italian Monica Boggioni, who stopped the clock at 2:55.24.

The second Israeli success on the first day of the 2018 World Para Swimming European Championships came just an hour later, when 17-year-old Ami Dadaon won the 100m freestyle race, with a new personal record of 1:25.40.

Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev tweeted her congratulations to the swimmers, writing: “You have brought honor to the State of Israel!”
