We already knew Israeli judoka and Olympic medal-winner Ori Sasson was a huge mensch (in more ways than one). This just solidifies it.
Via Follow Team Israel:
“Two years ago, together with a group of amazing people, including Shaul Gelbard – CEO of Bank Yahav, Yuval Koren and Avi Samuels, Shalva Chairman
I set up the Shalva Judo Center in Jerusalem.
The club was set up with the proceeds from the auction of my 🥋Judogi 🥋 I wore when I won my 💙🇮🇱💙Olympic Medal in Rio.
On my return from the GrandSlam in Paris🥋 I visited “Shalva” in Jerusalem. It was amazing to see the children performing the techniques and exercises that Coach Gadi Ben Lulu taught them.
I was just thrilled that this vision became a reality!
These kids give so much pure love.”
Kol hakavod Ori! You are a true champion and role model.
