Israeli Triple Jumper Wins Silver on World Stage

Congratulations to Hanna Knyazyeva-Minenko, who just made a giant leap for Israeli women’s athletics!  

In an unprecedented achievement for Israeli women’s athletics, an Israeli triple jumper on Monday won a silver medal at the 15th World Championships in China. Hanna Knyazyeva-Minenko is the first Israeli woman and only the second Israeli athlete to win a silver at the event, after pole-vaulter Aleksandr Averbukh 14 years ago.

Knyazyeva-Minenko, who placed fourth at the 2012 Olympics and sixth at the last World Championship, earned the silver with a national record of 14.78 meters on her second attempt.
