The jujitsu kid from Israel
Nadav Mandil, 16, wasn't a sports fan until he discovered his talent for the martial art of jujitsu. Buoyed by success at European championships, he’s now aiming for the very top.
On the bookshelves of Nadav Mandil’s bedroom are 19 medals, one trophy and four pyramids of Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream tubs. At 16, the Israeli high-school student from Ra’anana has two loves in life: dessert and jujitsu.
