Meanwhile, here’s some more suggested reading for you. Our “Meet Team Israel” bloggers, under the title “Going for the Israeli Gold,” have been writing a series of profiles of Israel’s medal hopes. Here’s their piece on Arik Zeevi, four-time Olympian and 2004 bronze medal judoka. And here’s their main blog page, where all their articles are listed.

And here’s the link to our daily Israeli Olympic schedule. We’ll be following the fortunes of Israel’s 37-strong delegation day-by-day as the Olympics unfold. Tomorrow, for instance, gymnast Alex Shatilov, who won medals at recent world and European championships, and was a finalist in the ’08 games, will start his quest for an Olympic medal. And Misha Zilberman will make his mark in Israeli history when he becomes the first badminton player to compete at the Olympics under the blue-and-white flag.
