Disabled Israeli Rower Wins Gold Medal and Sings Hatikvah On Her Own When Music is Missing


Organizers of a rowing competition for the disabled in Italy apparently didn't take into consideration the possibility that the Israeli contender, Moran Samuel, would win the competition, and they forgot to bring the CD with the national anthem, "Hatikvah," to the awards ceremony.
