Israeli Judo history: Yarden Gerbi is world champion
Since today is Say Nice Things about Israelis Day here at LGF, I thought I would share the following:
Yarden Gerbi won the world Judo championship, after beating her French opponent in less than a minute.
Gerbi is the fifth Israeli to win a medal in the world championship, after Yael Arad, Oren Smadja, Arik Zeevi and Alice Schlesinger - and the first to win gold. (Ynet)
