tle in 1985, captured three
gold medals in the Toronto
Maccabi games. She is now
competing in another
cultural-athletic event, the
Elitzuria Games in Israel, for
traditional and Orthodox
youth.
She began actively com-
peting at age 10. She practic-
ed "a few hours every day."
Her goal? "'Ib be the best." 'A
goal which she eventually
achieved in the U.S. competi-
tion. "I always wanted to go
to the Olympics," she adds.
"But it always seemed really
far away."
The Olympic table tennis
system involves qualifications
which do not allow the U.S. to
send a full team. Two spots in
this year's Olympics were
reserved for North
Americans. One player each
from the U.S. and Canada will
go. If the U.S. could send a full
squad "I would probably have
kept playing," Mantel says.
"But I decided to go to
school."
Although she is playing in
Israel this week, Mantel says
competition is "pretty well
behind me. Right now my
goals are to do well in school
and become a doctor. Table
tennis is more of something
that I like to do for recreation.
It's nice memories. And now
I like teaching it to other peo-
ple."
She admits that at her U-M
dorm, occasionally "I attack
people" at the ping pong
table. Like Clark Kent, she
hides her true identity. "And
all of the sudden I'm beating
them. They're very shocked."
However, she does not hustle
anyone for money. "Just for
fun," she says.
Her best table tennis

memory came at the 1986
U.S. Olympic Festival in
Houston. Mantel, then the
top-ranked U.S. junior, met a
highly-ranked senior player,
Ai-Li Wu, in the final match
of the festival. Mantel was not
only an underdog, she had
several distractions. "My leg
was all taped up and it was
horrible. And they were
rushing us, you know, 'Come
on, get done, we have to have
the award ceremony.' But I
beat her. That was probably
my favorite match."
Now "her" matches will be
played by other people. But at
least the Maccabi program
allows her to remain a partici-
pant in table tennis. ■
