SPORT JOEL Nathan is confident Team Maccabi GB can build on their success at the European Maccabi Games by pushing for honours at the 2017 Maccabiah Games in Israel.
Nathan’s appointment as General Team Manager comes as applications open for all athletes who want to represent Great Britain across a number of sporting disciplines.
Richard Horne will assist NathanunderwhomTMGBwonarecord medal haul in Berlin in August.
Nathan said: “Richard and I laid strong foundations before, during and after Berlin and this was widely reflected by the record-breaking amount of med- als and the thousands of memories our athletes, managers and coaches made on and off the field of play.
“There is nothing quite like a Maccabiah Games and we have already begun work recruiting for a top-class setup.”
Richard Horne s ai d: “We’re aiming to take the largest delegation we’ve ever taken to a Maccabiah Games – 500 participants – and we are spreading the word far and wide. Many people may have heard of the ‘Jewish Olympics’, but many may not have, so we encourage the whole community across the UK to help our search for the right people to compete.”
