Date of Birth: Levin (August 27, 1986, age 29), Froyliche (December 18, 1992, age 23)
Event: Men’s 470 Team Sailing
Schedule in Rio: Races – August 10-15; Medal Race – August 17
Career highlight: Ninth place in World Cup event in Weymouth & Portland
Outlook for Rio: Levin and Froyliche secured a berth in Rio despite only managing a 24th-place finish at the world championships in Haifa last year. They were only 26th in this year’s Worlds and their main goal in Rio will be to improve on that. Israel has come close to claiming a medal in the men’s 470 competition in the past, but in Rio it will be all about gaining experience for 2020.
