America's top-rated ham-
mer thrower is Ken Flax, who
feels he can win a medal in
Seoul.
"My best toss so far," he
says, "was 62-feet, 6-inches,
which is the 18th best in the
world. But 13 of the throws
further than mine were by
different Russian athletes.
They can only enter three of
them in the games, so that
puts me in the top 10, which
means a chance for a medal."
Flax was a walk-on at the
University of Oregon.
Flax first
picked up a hammer — ac-
tually a steel ball on a chain
— in 1982. Six months later
he won the national junior
championship. He was the
NCAA hammer champion as
a senior with a record throw
of 257 feet.
The last Maccabiah Games
had a significant impact on
his life.
"Before I competed in Israel
in 1985, I'd describe myself as
a secular Jew. But learning
more about our history and
culture turned me 180
degrees toward being more
Jewish. I'm very proud of my
hertiage and was scheduled
to be bar mitzvah'd in
Jerusalem in 1985 but it
didn't work out. I definitely
plan to be bar mitzvah'd next
year" during the 1989
Maccabiah.
Brad Gilbert, silver
medalist in the 1981 Mac-
cabiah, will compete in ten-
nis. Tennis was a demonstra-
tion sport in Los Angeles and
now is an official Olympic
event, one which is open to
professionals. Gilbert is rank-
ed as one of the top 15 players
in the world.
Other Jewish-American
Olympic athletes are
wrestlers Ken Chertow and
Andy Seras and fencers
Elaine Cheris and Paul
Friedberg.
Jewish coaches include Iry
Mondschein, who coaches the
U.S. decathlon squad. Mond-
schein coached Israel's Olym-
pic track team in 1952. Len
Roitman, a three-time Mac-
cabiah Games participant in
soccer, is an assistant soccer
coach. Carl Borack, a former
national foil champion and
1972 Olympian, is the non-
participating captain of the
1988 fencing squad. Abie
Grossfeld, former U.S. Olym-
pic gymnast and Maccabiah
gymnastics champion, will
coach the U.S. men's team for
the third time. He coached
the 1984 gold-medal-winners.
