Aly Goldfarb wins Israeli 800-meter national championship

TEL AVIV, Israel—Birmingham-Southern alumna and Israeli National Team member Aly Goldfarb continued her stellar professional track career recently by winning the 800-meter run at the 75th Israeli National Track and Field Championships in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Even plagued by a severe ankle injury sustained at the European Team Championships in Iceland in mid-June, which prevented her from training for two-and-a-half weeks, Goldfarb was able to not only become the 800m national champion, but come in second in the 1,500-meters.
