Jewish Olympics Hosted In Sydney, Australia

It looks like the Israeli's are going "down under" with Jewish athletes competing in what is known as the "Jewish Olympics" in Sydney, Australia.

( The inaugural Maccabi Australia International Games were held in Sydney this week. [...]

The opening ceremony was held before a packed audience in the Sydney Opera House and the main sporting venue was the Sydney Olympic Park, home of the 2000 Olympics.

Jews from around the world representing their respective nations compete in these events as the crisis in the West Bank prevents Israel from hosting the Olympics themselves. Hundreds of athletes attended the event, with the largest groups coming from the US and Israel.
