IDF veteran Shlomi Lazmy, winner of the international world bowling championships for the blind, joined in singing Israel’s national anthem in Japan.

Shlomi Lazmy, a blind Israeli veteran, won first place in the International Blind Sports Federation’s 2017 10-pin Bowling World Championships for the blind.

The event was held on August 26 in Fukuoka, near Tokyo.

Lazmy, 60, was lost his sight in a mine explosion in the Golan Heights during IDF reserve duty in 1986, when he was a 28-year-old newlywed, Israel 21C reported

Lazmy, of course, is an inspiring personality, and hearing the Hatikvah, Israel’s national anthem, played in Japan enhances the emotional impact.
