There's been a tremendous
rise in the number of
youngsters registering in
groups throughout the coun-
try. They now understand
that international success is
possible even though Israel is
not a world power in the
sport."
Figures are not yet
available, but IJA officials
estimate that all the coun-
try's community center, high
school, and privately run
groups will soon be full to
overflowing. But, says na-
tional team coach Moshe Pon-
ti, "Achievements in judo
never come overnight. It
takes at least a year or two of
hard work till you really
begin to appreciate it and see
results."
In fact, judo has a tradi-
tionally high dropout rate,

As the cream of Israel's
talent rises to the top, some
20 young judokas — including
95 kg. Simone Magrelashvilli,
who placed seventh in the
1991 World Championships,
and 48 kg. Batya Fratsozo,
currently a soldier — will
have a fighting chance of
qualifying for thee 1996
Olympics in Atlanta.
The country's judo fraterni-

representation in the army's
most elite commando units
