JCC MACCABI GAMES 2016 REPORT: Success brings more success as the medals keep rolling in for Team Maccabi GB

Team Maccabi GB's JCC Maccabi Games 2016 journey keeps growing from strength-to-strength, in and out of the sporting competition. By the end of Wednesday our competitors received another 10 more athlete medals, bringing the total to 24 so far. Away from the sport and our British Delegation are making plenty of young, Jewish friends from around the world with bonds being made every day.

Back to the sport and it was Great Britain's Swimmers, Dancers and Table Tennis athletes who were the big stars of the day, reaping in the Delegation's medals on another fantastic day. Despite yesterday's rain, Team Maccabi GB's Boys Football Teams both made it through the first knock-out rounds and are now through to the Semi-Finals. Our Girls Lacrosse Team are still in with a chance of winning a Bronze medal on Thursday and our Tennis athletes are back in action again for their Semi-Finals.
