Israeli sailors would not accept in the youth world championship sailing ISAF, which will begin on Sunday in Malaysia, according to Sport5.
An appropriate message sailing Federation of Israel sent to the International sailing Federation, the international Olympic Committee, the NOC of Israel.
Yoav Omer, Noah and Drian trainer Yaniv Meir will not go to the championship, as Malaysian authorities denied them visas.
The organizers of the championship have agreed to accept Israelis if they weren’t competing under the national flag, and refused to sing the national anthem in case of conquest by the Israelis of medals.
Sailing Federation of Israel found such conditions unacceptable.
