An Israeli finally won a medal at the 2012 London Olympics. The only problem - he was coaching the Russian Men's Basketball team.
David Blatt, who also coaches Maccabi Tel Aviv, steered the Russians to bronze following a nail-biting 81-77 victory in the third-place playoff.
"This is a very proud moment for me," said Blatt, who guided the Russians to their first basketball medal.
