Grace gershuny, helicopter pilot was seriously injured during the second Lebanon war, won last night (Saturday) at the tennis on rehabilitation as part of the Paralympics.

In 2006, gershuni was involved in an Apache helicopter crash. He was wounded and suffered since from hard, moved to the area. A year and a half ago began training at
Wheelchair tennis – and last night won the podium to hear the hatikva, after winning the gold medal.

Gershoni told Israeli army radio that he “didn’t know if it affects me anymore or I was injured for his country and gave my body and my life, and I’d do it over again even if I knew it would be. Can this be done
Me glad I brought so much honor to the country.

Chief, Lieutenant General Benny Gantz said last night: “I applaud gershuny you called on the IDF’s determination and accomplishments.” The IDF spokesman, Brig. Gen. Yoav Mordechai (Foley), spoke last night with him and shared gershuni in pride that filled me when wrapped in the flag of Israel sang the national anthem Hatikvah. Congratulations to the ל’אלוף world.
