    August 24, 2004. Israeli windsurfer Gal Friedman wins the country’s first ever gold medal. Even though he took 2nd in the last race of the competition, his overall score gave him the win. While this wasn’t the first medal for Israel, it was an important milestone for a country that had been participating since the 1952 games. The country’s substantial successes in the Paralympic games is another story however. In Three Hundredths of a Second we follow the Israeli Paralympic swimming team at the 2000 Sydney games.
