A gym which offers free membership to Maccabi GB athletes as they prepare for the Maccabiah Games has been targeted by anti-Israel campaigners.
Stickers proclaiming “Boycott Israeli Goods”, and displaying the Palestinian flag, were placed in changing room lockers at the Village Hotel in Elstree, Hertfordshire.
The company agreed a £250,000 sponsorship package with Maccabi GB in December.
As part of the deal, every member of the British team due to take part in the games in Israel in July was given free access to Village gyms around Britain.
