of any nation. At previous
Maccabiahs, the U.S. team
has included such notable
athletes as swimmer Mark

Gaylord, basketball stars Er-
nie Grunfeld and Danny
Schayes, golfer Corey Pavin
and tennis great Brad
Gilbert.

Country Club was the site of
the U.S. Maccabiah golf team
tryouts. _ Ten players were
chosen to the squad, which
will be coached by 1969 Mac-
cabean and 13-year PGA
veteran Bruce Fleisher. Four
golfers were also selected as
part of the expanded Masters
competition offered at the
13th Games. Masters teams
will also be fielded in basket-
ball, -squash, tennis, and ,
track and field, for athletes
35-and-over.

coach for the American na-
tional team since 1986. In ad-
dition, over 60 assistant
coaches, trainers, and
managers have been ap-

pointed to the U.S. delegation.
Eight members of the 1985
gold-medal winning U.S. soft-
ball squad will return to de-
fend their title this summer.
The rugby team returns four
athletes, who will try to im-
prove on their third place
finish of four years ago.

at the Pam-American Mac-
cabi Games will travel to the
Maccabiah this year. Jack

Rosenthal of Southfield will

be an accommodations
manager for the U.S. squad.
After the Olympics and the
Pam Am Games, the World
Maccabiah Games are the
third largest international
sporting event. The Games
are emphasized as a cultural,
as well as athletic, experience,
as Jewish athletes from all
over the world are able to
share in their heritage.
Athletes are housed accor-
ding to sport rather than
country,making them the
only international competi-
tion to follow this procedure.
