Judo has been in the headlines recently due to the London Olympic Games. Against all odds, we didn’t bring back a gold for the performance of Arik Ze’evi.

Nevertheless, Israel is part of the pantheon of judo’s 138 Olympic countries today. The first time we brought home Olympic medals was in 1992 from Barcelona, when two judokas, Yael Arad and Oren Smadja, won silver and bronze medals respectively.
