Israeli’s Paralympics Gold


Noam Gershony won Israel's first gold medal of the  London 2012 Paralympics on Saturday, beating top-ranked American David Wagner 6-3, 6-1 in the Quad Wheelchair Tennis Final.

Gershony, a former Apache helicopter pilot, was paralysed six years ago in a crash during the Second Lebanon War.

This was Gershony’s second medal as he also won a bronze in the  doubles tournament, with fellow Israeli Shraga Weinberg.

An emotional moment for Gershon
