Fresh faces spice up GB medal bid

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

SPORT TEAM GB have named five debu­tantes in their man­age­rial team for this sum­mer’s JCC Mac­cabi Games in Stam­ford, Con­necti­cut.

The del­e­ga­tion claimed a record haul of 79 medals at last year’s event where ath­letes, aged 13-16, rep­re­sent their coun­try in Amer­ica in a sport­ing en­vi­ron­ment, while ex­pe­ri­enc­ing so­cial and cul­tural pro­grammes with other young Jewish peo­ple.

The new faces in­clude Joey Carr, Tamir Grant, Natasha Kal­man­son, Jor­dan Sapler and Chloe Green­berg, a for­mer Brighton and Hove Al­bion coach, who will be look­ing to guide the Girls’ U16 team to their first medal at the event.

Grant heads the U16 bas­ket­ball team and will be look­ing to re­peat his achieve­ments of the 2013 Mac­cabiah Games when GB claimed their first vic­to­ries in the in­ter­na­tional arena.

GB co-head of del­e­ga­tion Jan­ice Aarons will lead the squad along­side hus­band Ian. She de­scribed the ap­point­ments as a “strong group made up of qual­ity across the board”.
