The immediate past president of Sydney’s Great Synagogue left Israel on the medal presentation day before the ceremonies began.

But last night, at a reunion for Sydney members of the Australian delegation, team mate Barbara Cohen proudly placed the medal around Ros’s neck.

Ros told J-Wire: “‘ve been travelling a fair bit recently and this is the first opportunity I have had to meet up with Barbara who brought the medal home from Israel for me. It’s a wonderful feeling to have it at last.”

Ros won the Bronze for the Women’s Golf  Masters Teams event.
