Aly Goldfarb of Birmingham, who moved to Israel earlier this year to train at the Oren Hasharon professional track club in Israel, was invited to join Israel's national track team.

A recent graduate of Birmingham-Southern, Goldfarb was selected by the club for her overall track and field records, both at Birmingham-Southern College and at the 18th Maccabiah Games, where she competed and medaled in numerous events in 2009.

As a member of BSC's track and field team, Goldfarb won several individual titles in both the 800-meter run and the pole vault, and was named BSC Female Athlete of the Year last season. She also medaled in the 2009 World Maccabiah Games in Israel, earning gold in the 4x400-meter relay and bronze in the 400-meter run and pole vault.

When she moved to Israel, she said "Running for the state of Israel is not only an honor and privilege, but a dream come true. The country of Israel is a very important part of my life and I could not be happier to represent the country in athletics."

In her first meet with Oren Hasharon, she competed in an event she had never done before, the 1,500-meter race, and not only won, but posted a time in the top 50 all-time for women in Israel.

Last weekend, she won the 800-meter race and was immediately invited to the team.

She will participate in the European Team Championships in Reykjavik, Iceland, in June.
