Sammy bronze af­ter he de­feated com­pa­triot Joe Kaye 4-2.

In the dou­bles, Team MGB made i t a 1 23, thanks to the pairs of Carl Brein­del/Sammy Kaye, Joe Kaye/ Scott Leve­son and Doddy Stelzer/Nathan Sonn .

In the plate com­pe­ti­tion, the sin­gles were dom­i­nated by Oliver We­is­feld (gold), James Rich (sil­ver) and Jake Blus­ton (bronze.)

There were 11 GB medals in the swim­ming events with golds for Chloe Ja­cobs in the 50m back­stroke and Elisha Kramer, Daniel Rinkoff and Daniel Schindler in their re­spec­tive 200m freestyle re­lays.

Schindler and Ja­cobs also took sil­vers i n the 200m in­di­vid­ual med­ley.

Fi­nally, there were bronzes for Elisha Kramer in the 100m breast­stroke, Ja­cobs in the 200m freestyle re­lay and Molly Leizer and Rinkoff in the 200m but­ter­fly, Schindler, win­ning a medal in ev­ery one of the 12 races he com­peted in.

In danc­ing, Leanne Poluck and Ta­mar Gold­wa­ter won the gold and sil­ver in the U16 jazz solo event, while the team took sil­ver in the group Is­raeli danc­ing.

Al s o tri­umphant on the day were Han­nah Grun­werg and Daisy Mar­go­lis who picked up six medals be­tween them – Han­nah with two sil­vers and two bronzes, Daisy with a sil­ver and a bronze for U16 girls chore­og­ra­phy.

Team MGB’s foot­ball boys faced Mex­ico for a place in the fi­nal but lost 4-2 in ex­tra-time. But they took the bronze thrash­ing East Bay 7–2.

In ten­nis, Tash Mosheim and Tammy Salt won girls dou­bles gold and Jack Miller and Ge­orge Bier did the same for the boys, while in the sin­gles Tali Fraser took a bronze. In the plate com­pe­ti­tion there was more suc­cess, this time for Char­lie Pen­tol-Levy and Jonathan Mizrahi, who both won gold in the U16 and U14 events.

Jimmy Ben­jamin un­for­tu­nately had to with­draw half-way through his bronze medal match in the U16 boys sin­gles with a dam­aged shoul­der. But over­all, the ten­nis play­ers had an im­pres­sive tour­na­ment.

Although no medals were won in lacrosse or girls’ foot­ball events, del­e­ga­tion head Brian Green said: “If gold medals were given out for team spirit and ef­fort then I would be re­port­ing a dif­fer­ent story as the girls have been fan­tas­tic and a true credit to Great Bri­tain’s Jewish com­mu­nity.

“Un­for­tu­nately, they did not have enough on the field of play to progress just that lit­tle fur­ther and win a medal but they have had great fun try­ing and have all made plenty of friends along the way – which is what these games are all about”
