the possibility of bringing his
former coach to Israel for a
month.
Another possibility being
explored is Mr. Ostrovski join-
ing the Czechoslovakian team
for a series of training camps
leading up to the world cham-
pionships in Tokyo next
August. Czechoslovakia
ranks with Italy and the
Soviet Union as world leaders
in long-distance walking.
"We've already overstretched
our budget this year, but such
is the price of an Olympic
medal in modern athletics,"
says Mr. Stein.
In the throwing events,
three Soviet immigrants have
already placed themselves at
the head of the local pack. Ig-
or Avrulin, 33, whose career
peaked in the '80s has set
new national records in both
the shot-put and discus
events, while rIbl Aviv Univer-
sity student Igor Giller and
Vadim Babikin-Lemer have
improved the local hammer
and javelin marks
respectively.
Tennis made its debut as an
Olympic sport in Seoul in
1988. Israel may have a
future medalist in 14-year-old
aptly named Anna
Smashnova, a recent arrival
from Moscow. In last sum-
mer's European Junior
Championships, her last com-
petition on Russian soil, she
finished second in the
under-15 section. Unlike Ms.
Smashnova, little Lika
Kazashvilli, who plays in Jaf-
fa, will have to wait until her
14th birthday next year
before International Tennis
Federation rules will allow
her to compete on the local
pro circuit.
Other names to watch out
for include 16-year-old
Anatoli Tolchansky, who can
compete with Israel's best in
his age group, and Boris
Levine, 14, who is coached by
his mother at the Ashkelon
club.
Israel would almost certain-
ly have its first ever Olympic
medalist if the Soviet
authorities would allow
Valeire Balenkin to leave
Russia. The gymnast — gold
medalist at the men's World
Cup tournament held in
Brussels — will almost cer-
tainly represent the USSR in
Barcc•tuila instead. A number
of oth top Soviet Jewish
male gymnasts, including
Alex Jorbin, Pavel Korin and
Ya'akov Lipchin, have mean-
while expressed interest in
aliyah.
Among the recent arrivals
in girls' gymnastics have
been 16-year-old Natasha
Mazochenko — already na-
tional champion in the
recently-introduced rhythmic
