The 20-year-old, who only ended her IDF service three months ago, beat Croatian Marija Malenica in the final of the women’s K1 under-60-kilogram competition. Block overcame six-time world champion Alena Muratava of Belarus in the semifinals.

Israel sent 11 representatives to the world championships, including four women. Block – who has also represented Israel in flag football – was the only Israeli to win a medal in the event.

The Israeli Kickboxing Federation is supported by Ayelet, the Federation of Non-Olympic Competitive Sport in Israel.
