Juggling for gold: Athlete-parents face extra challenges on the way to the finish line
No matter what your age or your sport, it’s never easy to find the time and energy to train for the Maccabiah. But when you’re a parent juggling kids’ needs and professional commitments, it becomes even more challenging. Meet three Maccabiah participants who have met the challenge.
