Born on the windy Mediterranean coastal town of Rosh HaNikra near the Lebanese border, Nufar Edelman, 30, will compete this year in the Laser Radial class.
She qualified for the Olympics at the ISAF Sailing World Championships at Perth, Western Australia.
She has already competed in the Olympics, in 2008, where she placed 16 in a one-person dinghy.
In the past she has won fourth position in the 2004 Laser Radial World Championships and seventh from 97 competitors in the 2007 Laser Radial World Championships in Portugal.
It was this 2007 race that made her the first Israeli woman to meet the criteria for the Olympics in the Laser Radial.
