Detroiter Cheers
For Israel Olympians

arcelona, Spain, and
Detroit are separated
by thousands of miles.
In Dr. Robert Tencer's heart,
however, it might as well be
millions.
Dr. Tencer, 25, a chiroprac-
tor with an office in Dear-
born, worked with approx-
imately 50 top Israeli athletes
last summer at the Wingate
Institute for Physical Educa-
tion and Sport, Israel's Olym-
pic training center, located
near Netanya.
Some of the athletes Dr.
Tencer met will be competing
in the Summer Olympics in
Barcelona.
He has corresponded with
several athletes by phone,
through the mail, and by fax
since he left Israel, and he
was reunited with a few
Israeli gymnasts at the recent
World Championships in
Indianapolis.
Dr. Tencer brought an
Israeli flag to Indy and waiv-
ed it in the stands during the
competition. He also
celebrated his birthday there
with his friends from across
the world.
"I wish I could be with
them in Barcelona, but I'll be
watching the Olympics real
closely on television," said Dr.
Tencer, a West Bloomfield
resident. "Hopefully, some of
the athletes I worked with
will
able to visit the U.S.
someday so I can see them
again."
Dr. Tencer was at Wingate
for three months on a volun-
tary basis. He paid his own
way to Israel and back. While
he was doing his internship
at a private clinic in San
Diego in 1990, he met the
Israeli national gymnastics
team and Wingate's director
on one of their tour stops at
the Jewish Community
Center there.
"I struck up a relationship
with the director (Dr. Gilad
Weingarten) and we started
corresponding. I got real con-
cerned for him and the
athletes when the Gulf War
started."
Once the war ended, Dr.
Tencer made his plans to
head to Israel.
While he was at Wingate, "I
watched the athletes train,
took care of their injuries,
made sure they were healthy
. . . in other words, I helped
get them in top shape for corn-
petition," Dr. Tencer said.
"There's a real close family
relationship at Wingate be-

cause the athletes really have
no other life. The only time
they leave the place is when
they go home on Shabbat to
be with their families.
"Because Israel is such a
small country, everybody
knows the top athletes. People
recognize them. That puts a
little pressure on them."
Their lives are also made
harder by the fear they could
be the target of terrorists. In
1972 11 Israeli athletes and
coaches were murdered by
Arab terrorists in Munich.
"Even though it's been 20
years since the horrible in-

with 50 Israeli
athletes.

cidents at the Munich Olym-
pics, Israeli athletes still have
very heavy security when
they travel," Dr. Tencer said.
"One athlete told me they
have bodyguards who carry
Uzis.
"Also, there's very little pay
for the athletes who train so
hard to make it to the Oym-
pics. Israel's top female gym-
nast, Carmit Borian, gets
300-350 shekels a month (one
U.S. dollar equals 2.4
shekels), plus food and living
expenses (125 U.S. dollars a
month).
"The athletes there were
alw inquiring about get-
ting American sponsors, but
they didn't know how to go
about doing it. I told them I
would do my best to get the
word out here."
Some of the athletes Dr.
Tencer worked with include
Eran Garumi (100-meter
backstroke swimmer); Vadim
Bavikin (javelin); Rogel
Nahum (triple-jump); Igor
