Best Olympic Athletes from Israel

List of the greatest Olympic athletes from Israel, with photos when available. These are the best Israeli Olympians of all time who have had the honor of representing their country at the prestigious Olympic games. Israeli athletes from every era all have their place in the Olympic history books, but which Israeli Olympian is the best of them all? You can decide who the greatest Olympic competitor from Israel is by how many medals they took back to their country, but that isn't the only factor that comes into play when considering who the best really is.

This list is made up of many different items, including Roman Zaretsky and Alexandra Zaretsky.

This list answers the questions, "Who is the best Israeli Olympian of all time?" and "Who are the greatest Olympians from Israel?"

America, Russia and Great Britain have the most Olympic medals out of every country that has been represented in the Olympics, but it doesn't mean that Olympic competitors from other nations don't deserve accolades as well. Vote for your favorite Israel Olympic athletes on this list, and downvote the ones that you don't think had a huge impact on Israel.
