Israel’s only Olympic gold winner won’t sell his medal after all

Israel’s only Olympic gold winner wanted to sell his medal on eBay. But now, he has changed his mind.
Gal Fridman is 43 years old. Fourteen years ago, competing in the Mistral Windsurfing class, he won the gold medal at the Athens 2004 Summer Olympics.
The sailor from Pardes Hanna-Karkur immediately became a national hero in Israel and, until today, he is the only athlete ever to win a gold medal for his country in the Olympic Games.
