Career highlight: Finishing in 18th place at the European Games in Baku last year

Outlook for Rio: Haimy secured his place in Rio by ending the cross-country mountain biking World Cup event in La Bresse, France in 65th position in May, three places in front of Rotem Ishay, his rival for Israel’s lone berth in Brazil. Israel will be represented in an Olympic mountain biking competition for the first time after the national team earned one berth by being ranked in 22nd place in the UCI Olympic qualification rankings.
