Jewish athletes have achieved several milestones in the past few decades and have played pivotal roles in the successes of their teams. Sandy Koufax and Hank Greenberg were two former Baseball players who represented the teams ‘Los Angeles Dodgers’ and ‘Detroit Tigers’ respectively. Koufax contributed as a pitcher to his team for a period of eleven years and played 12 seasons before hanging his boots. Mark Spitz is an American swimmer of Jewish descent who made the USA proud at the 1972 Olympic Games. He alone bagged around seven medals at the event, a feat which took many sports lovers and critics by surprise. Dara Torres, Sue Bird, Sasha Cohen and Lenny Krayzelburg are a few other famous Jewish athletes.
