Indonesia denies Israeli badminton player visa for World Championships

Israeli Badminton player Misha Zilberman is set to miss next week’s World Championships in Indonesia after the world’s most populous Muslim country refused to grant him a visa.

The 26-year-old, who represented Israel at the London 2012 Olympics, spent the past couple of weeks practicing in Singapore while waiting for his visa request to be approved.

However, despite filing his initial application six months ago, Zilberman was turned down by Indonesian officials time and again, with all his pleas to the Badminton World Federation falling on deaf ears.
