Lenny the Maccabee
U.S. gold-medalist to swim at Maccabiah Games

D. England/Allsport
U.S. Olympic gold medalist Lenny Krayzelburg plans to swim in next summer's Maccabi Games in Israel.
Move over, Sandy Koufax. Lenny Krayzelburg, America's triple Olympic gold-medalist swimmer, intends to skip the World Championships in Japan in order to compete at the Maccabiah Games next July in Israel. "I have never been to Israel and I would really like to go there and compete," Krayzelburg told the Reuters news service. "It is a very important part of my heritage." Born in Odessa, Ukraine, Krayzelburg left the Soviet Union with his parents in 1989, when he was 13, in part to escape anti-Semitism. He captured the gold at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, in both the 100- and 200-meter backstroke, both in Olympic record time, and led off the U.S. world record-setting 4X100 medley relay team.
