GYMNASTICS COIN 2011/5771
Commemorative Coin in honor of the Israel Olympic Delegation to the 2012 Olympic Games.
Israel is proud of the recent high performances of its gymnasts in international competitions, which have brought them into the world's foremost group of competitors; Alex Shatilov, Irina Risenzon and Neta Rivkin achieved high results in the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, as well as in the 2009 and 2010 European and World Championships.
In anticipation of the 2012 London Olympic Games, the Israel Olympic Committee has set the following goals:
To come home with an Olympic Medal for the 6th consecutive time.
To have an Israeli female athlete awarded a medal on the winners' platform.
To win an Olympic medal in a sport in which Israel has not yet won.
In Gymnastics, Israel has a good chance of achieving these stated goals.
The new coin issued by the Bank of Israel depicts an impressive ribbon performance by a gymnast, with the ribbon flying in the air in the shape of a Star of David. The coin will join the world collection of coins, capturing the excitement of the Games in London and hopefully achieving the Olympic Motto: "Faster, Higher, Stronger".
Gymnastics is visually one of the most attractive of the Olympic Games. Furthermore, Gymnastics demands outstanding strength, balance, coordination, flexibility and grace and requires strenuous and disciplined training in addition to talent. The Olympic Gymnastics competitions are divided primarily into Rhythmic and Artistic categories.
