Until a few years ago, it was very rare to hear of Israeli victories in any sport on the world stage. But Israeli athletes are changing that!
Recently European Championships were held in many Olympic sports and Israel brought home gold in several events in which they are becoming world contenders!
In another example of growing athletic prowess, Israeli 19-year-old Deni Avdija was recently drafted by the NBA’s Washington Wizards in the 9th overall pick in the draft. The 6-foot-9 forward became only the third Israeli ever to don an NBA uniform.
The Bible tells us Israel will prosper in the last days. Of course we are seeing that economically and in the foreign policy arena. However, prosperity seems to be invading the Israeli sports scene as well.
Congratulations to the rising stars in Israel. May they serve as great ambassadors to their nation.
