A delegation of Israeli youth won 12 medals in an international Shinkyokushin Karate event in Lucerne, Switzerland, this week, overcoming a team from Iran along the way.

Over 300 competitors from 18 countries took part in the event.

Among Israel’s winners was 17-year-old Nir Shubinski from Nofim. “I was proud to bring pride to Israel and to the Shomron,” said Shubinski.

This is the second time that Shubinski has won a gold medal and we are very proud of him,” said national team coach Gleb Rabinovich. “It is unfortunate that the State of Israel only promotes soccer and basketball.”
