Ready to Hit the Ground Running by ProQuest


"I'm really looking forward to seeing the athletes have a great experience and a great Maccabiah experience," said [Craig Hoffman], who coaches at Malvern Preparatory School and has overseen competitions all over the world, including in Croatia and England. "If they're successful, I know I'm going to be satisfied.""If I go and I win, then hallelujah," said [Elana Molotsky], one of the area's youngest competitors. "If I don't, then I competed internationally - and how can you go wrong with that?""When I was over there - and I was only over there once - you really do feel what the country has gone through," said the coach. "There's such an identity and such a pride about their country, and you can see it when you speak with the Israelis - how proud they are of what they do and how their country has come about."
