Rabat - Though the United Arab Emirates did not permit the Israeli judoka Or Sasson to wear his national insignia last month, the athlete was allowed to wear Israel’s symbols at the Openweight World Championships in Marrakech on November 12. While Sasson lost the championship Saturday to French judoka Cyrille Maret, the Israeli news site Jerusalem Post wrote that it wasn’t a total defeat. “His appearance with ISR on his uniform was still a victory of sorts for Israel’s judo team.”
