Congratulations Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie

New Zealand Sailors Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie have won gold in the Women's 470 class

Aleh, 26, whose parents are dual Israeli-New Zealand citizens, skippered the pair into the lead from the start of the gold medal race Friday at the London Olympic games.
Following the Olympics, Aleh and her family reportedly are traveling from London to Israel for Aleh’s half-sister, Shefa’s bat mitzvah celebration. That means an Olympic medal will land in Israel despite the failure of that country’s athletes to win any in London.
Ko havavod!
