Maccabi Victoria - Upcoming Events
Jemima's golden walk captivates a nation
I am sure you all know by now that Maccabi club athlete Jemima Montag has WON the gold medal at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in the women’s 20 kilometer race walk. Jemima is the first Athletics club athlete ever to represent Australia at the Commonwealth Games – and then to win the gold!!!
What an amazing effort! Congratulations to Jemima – of course – and all her family and support team who have worked so hard for this moment. It was less than 12 months ago that Jemima represented Australia in the 10K road running race at the Maccabiah Games in Israel!
Len Bogatin - Athletics Club President
