Israeli Nephew of Detroiters
Captures U.S. Swim Trophies
A young Israeli swimmer with
strong Detroit ties is a double gold
medalist in the National Associa-
tion of Intercollegiate Athletics
He is Avraham Melamed, the
sabra son of Mrs. Dena Melamed
and the late Efrain Melamed, who
settled in Kfar Yohanan 40 years
ago. Avraham is the nephew of
Detroiters Louis LaMed and Jack
At 27, Avraham remains un-
beaten since arriving in the U.S.
last year and enrolling at West
Liberty State of West Virginia,
where he is majoring in physical

Melamed twice represented
Israel in the Olympic Games,
once in 1964 at Tokyo and the
second time in 1968, when he
placed 10th in the 100-meter
butterfly and 15th in the 200-
meter. He also competed in the
Maccabia Games and last year
in the World University Games
in Turino, Italy.
It was at the latter that Mel-
amed met his future American
coach, Tom Grail of West Liberty
State. When Grail heard that
Melamed was planning to come
to the U.S. and stay with relatives
in Detroit or New York until find-
ing a school, Grail convinced the
young man to attend West Liberty.
Not long after enrolling there,
Melamed broke West Virginia In-
tercollegiate Athletic Conference
records in butterfly and free-style
meets. The climax of the season
for Melamed was his winning of
the NAIA's 100-yard butterfly in
53.1 seconds, and the 200 in 1 min-
ute 57.3 seconds.
Considered Israeli's top butter-
flyer and free-styler, Melamed is
really a late-comer to the swim-
ming scene. It wasn't until he was
16 that he showed any sign of be-
coming a good swimmer. Four
years later he was at the Olym-
Coed From Southfied
Marches to Jerusalem
A foot-sore Deborah Goldstone,
daughter of the Harold Goldstones
of Catalina Dr., Southfield, was
among the American collegians
who participated in the 17th annual
Three-Day March to Jerusalem
Deborah, a sophomore at the
American College in Jerusalem, is
studying archeology and history
there. She and her fellow students,
dressed in blue shirts with the
ACJ insignia, were among 20,000
participants in the march from
all over the world.
