The Sachs family of three flew to Israel to compete in the 18th Maccabiah Ten Pin Bowling tournament…and each family member will bring home at least one medal.

Phil, Debbie and Lena Sachs - with medals

Dad Phil, 53, took out Gold in the Masters event while Mum Debbie 44, walked away with two silvers, one in the teams and the other in the triples…as did daughter Lena.

This was 21-year-old Lena’s first Maccabiah during which she celebrated her 21st but it  is Phil’s 4th and Debbie’s 3rd.

For Phil,  who hails from Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the medal ceremony had special meaning as it was the first time he had struck gold.

Lisa Benedykt’s Bronze was the first medal ever won by Australia in the Women’s Masters event and the Victorian also picked up the Silver in the teams event.

A night right up everyone’s alley.
