The youngest member of the Israeli delegation, Neta Rivkin has only just turned 17. Rivkin was added to the delegation as one of three youngsters who fell just short of the criteria, but are expected to have a bright future ahead of them. The gymnast made her breakthrough in 2007, finishing 13th in the European Championships and 20th in the Worlds. Rivkin has been training for the Olympics eight hours a day, six days a week, but is not expected to finish among the top-10 in the qualifiers and advance to the final. The Beijing Games could, however, be an important experience for the teenager ahead of London 2012 and future Olympics.
