On July 11th there was a special swimming exhibition relay at the 20th World Maccabiah Games: USA vs. ISRAEL. The relay was made up of Olympians and Masters Swimmers: Lenny Krayzelburg, Alex Blavatnik, Anthony Ervin, Jason Lezak who went head-to-head with Maccabi Israel's Guy Barnea, Tal Stricker, Eran Gourmi & Yoav Bruck! In the 4 x 50 Medley Relay, Israel took lead after two legs, but Anthony cranked out a 23.6 on the fly leg and Jason Lezak anchored in 23.3 to capture the win! All for fun and great support of the Maccabiah!
In addition, one of our Masters Swimmers, Jane Katz who has been involved/competing in the Maccabiah Games since 1957 won 4 individual gold medals, 2 individual silver medals, and 2 bronze relay wins for Team USA.
Final Games take place today, July 16th, let's go TEAM USA!
