Windsurfer Gal Fridman won Israel’s first gold medel EVER today in the men’s Mistral Windsurfing competition! It is their second medel ever, with the first in Barcelona, but the first gold. Fridman’s first name, Gal, means “wave” in Hebrew – how fitting. You can find coverage and many other details at articles in:

Hazak, hazak v’nithazek – be strong, be strong and we will be strengthened!
UDATE – Gal Fridman dedicated his medal in memory of the athletes murdered in Munich in 1972. (I learned this from Kesher Talk.)
