Gold Medal Rower Sings Israeli National Anthem at Award Ceremony (VIDEO)
Israeli rower Moran Samuel sang Hatikvah, the Jewish state’s national anthem, after she won a gold medal at last month’s international rowing competition for disabled athletes in Italy. Since competition organizers failed to prepare a recording of the song, Samuel chose to sing the song herself.
“If you look at an obstacle as a challenge, then you’ll do the maximum to overcome it. There can be small challenges, like the anthem and me taking the mic and singing, and there can be bigger challenges,” Samuel said, according to Israel Hayom.
