Replete with facts, figures, and statistics, this revised and updated edition of Great Jews in Sports documents the contribution of Jewish athletes to the world of sports over the past two centuries. From home-run king Hank Greenberg, star of the 1930s and 1940s, to figure skater Sarah Hughes, surprise winner of the gold medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics, this new edition of a perennial favorite presents intriguing portraits of sports stars from around the globe. Bestselling author Robert Slater’s more than 150 major profiles and thumbnail sketches include such a fascinating and diverse mix as gymnast Kerri Strug, gold-medal winner at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics; Daniel Mendoza, the father of modern boxing; Esther Roth, the first Israeli to reach the Olympic finals; Sidney Franklin, the first Jewish bullfighter; Sandy Koufax, the youngest player ever to be admitted to the Baseball Hall of Fame; Hungarian gymnast Agnes Keleti, who earned an impressive five gold medals in the 1930s and 1940s; and power swimmer Lenny Krayzelburg, who won two gold medals for the United States at the 1998 World Championships in Perth, Australia. For those particularly interested in the Israeli sports scene, Slater devotes an entire section of biographies to outstanding Israeli sports figures, including pole vaulter Alex Averbukh, figure-skating couple Galit Chait and Sergei Sakhnovski, tennis player Anna Smashnova Pistolesi, and track and field stars Zehava Shmueli and Uri Zohar. Also included are lists of the winners of the Maccabiah Games and of members of the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. First published in 1983, Robert Slater’s new edition of the classic Great Jews in Sports will continue to delight seasoned sports lovers while introducing a whole new generation to some of the finest athletes of all time.
