National Israeli Team Swimmer Jonathan Kopelev broke the Israeli National Record in the 50m Backstroke with a superb result of 24.60sec. Kopelev broke the record while swimming a demonstration heat during the Israeli Junior National Championships yesterday. (He just missed the qualifying time for the Rio Olympic Games. In 2012, he had his ticket to London Olympic Games but due surgery he did not compete).
We hope to see Kopelev in the 2020 Olympic Team representing Israel in Tokoyo, Japan.
