Oliel stars at Euro Olympic festival

The Israel delegation to the European Youth Olympic Festival in Tbilisi, Georgia added four silver medals to its tally in the final two days of competition which ended on Saturday.

Israel had just one silver medal to its name ahead of the weekend, but it amassed four more by Saturday night’s closing ceremony, with tennis prodigy Yshai Oliel claiming two.

Oliel, 15, who was seeded No. 1 in the singles event, began the day with a disappointing 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 defeat in the final to Adrian Andreev (4) of Bulgaria. He returned to the court a few hours later for the doubles final with 14-year-old Roi Ginat, with the two falling 7-6 (2), 2-6, 6-3 to Riccardo Perin and Gabriele Bosio of Italy.
