The young athletes have hopes for the future, anticipating the upcoming London Olympics: “First of all – military service. I don’t think you can serve properly for three years if you’re training for the Olympics. Meantime, I must strive to achieve the outmost; I’m told that representing Israel at the Olympics is the most significant service I can perform for the country. And after my military service I would like to get a law degree,” Yuval said.

“I would like to be involved in any form of sports during my military service. It’s very important for me not give up on my Judo training. After my military service I would like to get a degree in physical education, to become a trainer. Of course I would like to continue and compete in more advanced competitions – The world championships and the London Olympics,” Shachar stated.

Yesha (Judea and Samaria) council spokesman Roni Arazi stated: “I congratulate these outstanding athletes who join those who excel in education, volunteering, the industry and enlistment to the IDF, who live throughout Judea and Samaria and who represent the municipalities of the vicinity with great honor, in Israel and abroad. It’s pleasant to witness how with every crown of national pride which is bestowed upon the residents of Judea and Samaria, the extreme left wing minority encounter a growing difficulty to sabotage the spirit of the settlement enterprise.”
