Orienteering in the Jewish Olympics?   Leave a comment

Let’s be realistic – orienteering won’t be in the Olympic Games in the near future.

But the Maccabiah (https://www.maccabi.org/sport/maccabiah), the Jewish version of the Olympics, is a different matter. The 21st edition of these games will be held in July 2022 (after a COVID-19 postponement), as always in Israel, and the absolute minimum for including a sport is 25 athletes from 4 countries (excluding Israel, of course).

We’re in contact with some Jewish orienteers around the world, but there may be many more that we don’t know about. So if you (or someone you know) are Jewish, in any age group, and interested in participating, please contact Doron Keynar at doronknr@gmail.com. Don’t worry about the bureaucracy and logistics yet, there’s still a long way to go – let’s get orienteering included, and then take care of the details.
