THE swimming finals kicked off in the best way possible for the Australian team at the Maccabiah Games, with two-time Paralympic gold medallist Matt Levy now adding the title of three-time Maccabiah gold medallist to his résumé.
THE 2017 Maccabiah Games is set to be one of the most special Games in its 85-year history because there are more than 500 Australian athletes attending. It will be extra special for the Weill family, who will be supporting two family members this year.
