Sailors Eran Sela and Gidi Kliger will represent Israel in the men’s two-person dinghy 470 at the London Games.
Sela is a two-time Israeli national champion and a three-time runner-up.
The 27-year-old Sela was born in the city of Hadera but moved as a teenager to Kibbutz Sdot Yam to train at the sailing club there.
He and Kliger won silver at the Sailing World Cup earlier this year in Palma de Majorca and took home bronze at the European Championships in 2011.
