The Discrimination and Boycott of Israeli Athletes in Global Sports
Join Students Supporting Israel for a one in a kind lecture, an issue that we don't hear about starting from denying entry to competitions, refusal to contest against Israeli athletes, and to avoiding displaying the Israeli flag, this is an alarming phenomena that takes place in international sports for years.
The 1972 Munich Olympics, where a massacre of eleven Israeli Olympic team members by a Palestinian terror group took place, is a horrific example of the Middle East conflict getting in the way of sports.
As the Founder and President of Students Supporting Israel, as an experienced soccer player and coach, and as a candidate for a Master’s in Coaching Education, Ilan Sinelnikov has conducted extensive research on the topic that was now developed into a fascinating presentation.
The lecture deals with the many ways Israeli athletes are being discriminated against, and examines the phenomena through history and in many types of sports. Despite the disrespectful and discriminatory behavior towards Israeli athletes, the lecture also provides hope through examining some of the athletic initiatives that try to build a bridge between Israel and its neighbors.
