Sinai Says: Retirement not yet in the cards for Israeli handball icon Maimon

The dilemma that every athlete dreads haunted 40-year-old Israeli handball superstar Idan Maimon throughout this past season.

After announcing at the start of the year that this would be his final campaign as a professional, the country’s greatest ever player realized he may have made a mistake.

Further complicating the situation was the fact that Maimon had the rare opportunity to go out on top. Every athlete dreams of ending his career on a high, especially those who spent most of it at the pinnacle of their sport, and Maimon could have done that after helping Hapoel Rishon Lezion to a league championship and State Cup double last month, the club’s first since 2001.
