The Israeli national team takes gold in the men’s group marathon at the European Athletics Championships in Munich.

Israel’s Marhu Teferi also wins a silver medal at the competition, while fellow Israeli Gashau Ayale picks up a bronze medal.

Along with Teferi and Ayale, the other members of the gold medal squad are Omer Ramon, Yimer Getahun and Girmaw Amare.
