Schedule in Rio: Competition – August 10

Career highlight: Silver medal at European Championships in 2013

Outlook for Rio: Bolder began representing Israel in 2015 after following her husband to the country from the Netherlands and she quickly settled in the national team. She has yet to win a medal at a major competition for Israel, but has the potential to do so, as seen in her run to the gold medal at the Grand Prix event in Havana, Cuba in January. Bolder enters Rio with many question marks, being sidelined with a left knee injury since March.
