Israeli Sports Fans Have Exciting Weekend
Israeli sports fans had a good weekend, with the national Under-20 basketball team clinching its first ever European Championship Sunday night with an 80-66 victory over Croatia in Chemnitz, Germany. “You achieved an historic achievement and earned a trophy for the State of Israel. I am proud of you,” said Minister of Culture and Sport Miri Regev. The championship came a day after Team USA clinched their own championship title at the Men’s Lacrosse world finals in Netanya, beating Team Canada 9-8.
