Hi all,

It's been a LOOONG time since I last posted here, but today there's a good reason to break my silence.

Gal Friedman, a weight weenie, a friend, and an avid member of this Weight Weenies forum, today won a GOLD MEDAL at the 2004 Athens Olympics. Gal is a windsurfer and he represents our home country Israel. This is the first Olympic gold medal ever won by an Israeli, so it goes without saying that as of today Gal is a folk hero here in Israel.

WAY TO GO GAL!
