Israelis are as sports crazy as others around the world. They especially love basketball and soccer. Israelis have excelled in sports that often get less attention; for example, their first Olympic medal came in Judo and first gold medal in Windsurfing. Israel also hosts athletes from around the world for the “Jewish Olympics” known as the Maccabiah Games.
