to badminton:' says Golds-
tein, who lettered in that
sport, golf and swimming at
Flint Northern High School.
"There's a lot of deception
and speed in badminton. It's
very demanding. The pace of
an international. match is far
beyond anything you've ever
seen!'
Arizona State — the UCLA
of college badminton, having
won the last six National Col-
legiate Athletic Association
championships — is equally
demanding of its stars. They
practice 20 hours per week,
playing badminton, doing
footwork drills, running and
lifting weights.
Goldstein, who trains all
summer, enrolled at the
University of Michigan-Flint
after graduating from Nor-

badminton.

them High to await a possi-
ble scholarship from ASU, the
only school in the country
"with a real scholarship-type
program. The other schools .
just have badminton clubs,"
he says.
Staying home also kept him
near the Mott Badminton
Club, whose coach, Evelyn
Stockton, recruited him 10
years ago to round out one of
the club's after-school classes.
Goldstein, who also played
football, Little League
baseball and soccer, took to
badminton. He became the
junior national 13-and-under
singles champion and co-
champion in mixed doubles.
He later won the national
mixed doubles in 15-and-
under and was national
singles runner-up in
18-and-under.
In his first year at ASU,
Goldstein, a business
management major, teamed
with fellow junior Joel Kier-
nan. The two finished as
NCAA doubles runners-up in
1988. Goldstein finished fifth
in singles this year.
"I've never had a chance to
go to Israel before," says
Goldstein. "It would be nice
to go and further the team's
chances, but also it would be
a chance for me to go
someplace quite special!'
The Maccabiah Games have
served as a training ground
for such Olympic athletes as
swimmer Mark Spitz — and
badminton will become an of-
ficial Olympic' sport at the
1992 Madrid Games.
'It's very popular — it's se-

cond to soccer in Europe and
No. 1 in Asia;' Goldstein says.
U.S. Maccabiah team
members include Cantor,
Goldstein and Kiernan — also
a two-time All-American —
and Gil Fried of Ohio State,
Daniel Zaidspiner of Georgia
Institute of Technology, Alex-
ander Berks of the Universi-
ty of California-Santa Bar-
bara and Carla Marshack of
Bowling Green State (Ohio).
Marshack, a freshman, is a
two-time Illinois state cham-
pion, while Berks is the only
returnee from the 1985
team. ❑

ADL Protests
India's Refusal

New York = The Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith said it is "deeply *con-
cerned" over India's refusal to
compete against Israel in the
recent World Table Tennis
Tournament in Germany.
In a letter to P.V.
Narasimha Rao, India's
minister of foreign affairs,
Burton S. Levinson, ADL na-
tional chairman, and
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL
national director, asserted
that India's default in the
tournament "was totally in
conflict" with discussions
they had with him and other
Indian 'officials last January
during a five-day mission to
India.
"As we noted during our
meeting;' the ADL leaders
said in their letter, "it will
serve all parties — Israeli, In-
dian and American — for
Israel and India to develop
better relations."
The latst snubbing of Israel
by India came one year after
that country cancelled its par-
ticipation in the Davis Cup
tennis match against Israel
in Tel Aviv.
