From Leinì… to the Olympic gold medal

Gal FridmanIt is right what happened to friend Gal Fridman, Israeli windsurfer (in the photograph). Gal attended Swami’s Darshan together with his coach Mike Gebhardt – two times Olympic champion from US. The photograph below shows them in our Centre, while looking at happily a Star of David in gold which was given Gal by Swami Roberto during Darshan.

Was it by chance? Strangely enough Gal Fridman then won the men’s Mistral sailing event at the Olympics on 25th August 2004, picking up Israel’s first-ever – and most prestigious – Olympic gold medal.
