Maccabiah Games draws for Team GB

    Maccabi GB’s teams now know who they will be facing in Israel this summer as all groups have been drawn for the 19th Maccabiah Games.

    Maccabi GB, who is in partnership with UJIA, have been highly seeded for many of the sports, owing greatly to their success in the 18th Maccabiah Games in 2009 where they won nine gold, 13 silver and 18 bronze medals. They will be looking to better those results this time.

    The draw sees Team GB pitted against a variety of countries in the numerous sports ranging from the international powerhouses of USA, Brazil, South Africa and hosts, Israel, to Maccabi delegations which include Peru and India.
