LONDON - After a slow start to London 2012, the Israeli delegation enjoyed one of its greatest ever days in its 60 years of participation in the Olympics on Wednesday.

Remarkable accomplishments of historic proportions arrived from the different Olympic venues, from Weymouth in the south to Wimbledon in the west and of course from the Olympic Park itself.



Ze'evi will become just the third Israeli to participate in four Olympics and he will be looking to cap a glittering career with the biggest triumph of them all.

The 35-year-old's career looked to be as good as ever after his early exit from the Beijing Games four years ago, but the bronze medalist from the 2004 Athens Olympics was crowned in April as European champion for the fourth time in his career and for the first time in eight years.
