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.
