Aged 15 years he took out the prize in his Division. Yuval was thrilled to chat to Maccabi News whilst Aunty Lauren Ehrlich was singing his praises in the background.

Yuval took up fencing about five years ago. His inspiration commenced when he watched Fencing at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. He was always incredibly fascinated by the sport. Yuval said, “It’s a fun and interesting sport and a great way to let off some steam. I have been traveling all over the world to partake in International events and it has been rewarding.” Maccabi News has just found out that Yuval also tried his luck in the Under 18’s Division Tuesday evening and won. A true champion!
