Israeli swimmers hoping to shine at worlds in Russia

After a disappointing showing in Barcelona two years ago, the Israel delegation to this summer’s world swimming championships is aiming for a much-improved display in Kazan, Russia.

Israel sent 11 swimmers to the pool events in Kazan, which begin on Sunday.

Amit Ivry, Yakov Toumarkin, Tomer Zamir, Ido Haber, Zohar Shikler, Ziv Kalontarov, David Gamburg, Guy Barnea, Jonatan Kopelev, Gal Nevo and Liran Konovalov will all be targeting personal bests, which they hope will also be fast enough to meet Olympic qualifying time standards.
