Israeli windsurfer Lee Korzits, 28, will compete in this year’s London Summer Olympic Games. If she reaches the podium, she will be the third Israeli to win a medal in windsurfing and the first Israeli woman to stand on the Olympic podium since Yael Arad won the first such medal in Judo at the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992.

“I go to London like a favorite and I train really hard to be good and to keep the top but, you know, I cannot sign that I am going to be in the medals. But I can sign that I will work hard and I will try all my best. And all the energy from the people that want that I would win I will take for me. And I hope that they will be happy with me if I win and will understand if I will not win,” she said, according to Israel Hayom.
