FILE – In this Aug. 14, 2008 file photo, Israel’s Arik Zeevi, white, and France’s Frederic Demontfaucon compete at the men’s judo -100kg half heavyweight division preliminaries at the Beijing 2008 Olympics in Beijing. As one of only six Israelis to have won an Olympic medal, Arik Zeevi already has earned his place among the country’s sporting pantheon. But the 35-year-old judoka, who recently won the European title in the 100-kilogram class, is not ready to call it quits just yet. He’s got one more fight left in him: a run at the 2012 London Olympics. “The fact that I’m 35 years is an advantage because I have experience,” Zeevi told The Associated Press. “I’m trying to take the advantage of my age and bring it to the match. But I don’t fool myself. I know that to bring results in my age is very difficult.” (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
