The Golden Gal

More on Gal Fridman and Israel’s first ever gold medal:

 

  • If you want to congratulate Gal, his email address is found on this web page
  •  

  • Silver medallist Nikolaos Kaklamanakis is actually a friend of Gal’s.
  • “It’s a beautiful ending to my career,” the four-time Olympian said, adding that he and Fridman, a friend and training partner, would celebrate together Wednesday evening.

    Kaklamanakis said, “Gal deserved to win the title. I am very happy for him.”

  • The New York Times has an excellent article on Gal’s victory, and how Israel has stood tall, despite Iran’s despicable actions earlier in the Games. I recommend you read the whole article. Here is a extract:
  • “For us, for the people who live in Israel, this warms your heart,” said Gilad Mulyan, one of three Israelis among 250 on a boat who watched Fridman win the Mistral race. “When Gal won, he came over to us and said, ‘Hi.’ The Greeks around us on the boat, they were all clapping and cheering for him, yelling, ‘Go, Gal.’ Everyone was together in celebration. It was a very special moment.”

     

    The moment stretched on into an unforgettable sunset scene. Kissing his gold medal, staring up at his flag with his anthem playing, Fridman made Israel tangible, real and impossible to ignore. Who in the world would not recognize this man?

  • I still stand by my comment that he looks like Ray Romano’s and Jerry Seinfeld’s love child. Not that there’s anything wrong with it..
