Sinai Says: Five athletes with five backgrounds represent Israel at worlds

It may not be the biggest or best delegation Israel has ever sent to the World Athletics Championships. However, it is surely the most fascinating group of athletes that have represented the country in the showcase event of track and field.

Five Israelis will participate in this year’s championships in Beijing, which get underway on Saturday and will run for eight days.

Triple-jumper Hanna Knyazyeva-Minenko, runner Donald Sanford, javelin-thrower Marharyta Dorozhon, high-jumper Dmitry Kroyter and sprinter Olga Lenskiy are all of different ages and backgrounds.
