Prime Minister Ariel Sharon met Thursday with the Israeli national judo team. "There is no doubt that two weeks ago, the Israeli national judo team made one of the greatest achievements in the history of Israeli judo," Sharon said, referring to the team's defeat of the Hungarian national team that led to to victory in the Final Four competition at the European Team Judo Championships in Budapest. "From Israel's point-of-view, such an achievement in the international sphere is a contribution to Israel and to its national mood. Therefore, this was not just a personal victory for you but a victory for all of Israel in the field of sports in which there is great international interest. Your contribution is considerable and I would very much like to congratulate you," said Sharon.
