At the 2013 Maccabi Games in Israel Guniea-Bissau is represented by 10 athletes competing in 3 different sports.
* BASKET BALL (MEN'S)
* LAWN BOWLING (MEN'S)
* BADMINTON (LADIES, MIXED DOUBLES)


MEN'S BASKETBALL
The team's made of great businessmen, engineers and computer programmers. They all share the same passion and the same superhuman power. They're all incredible basketball players. "We're going to have some tough opponents this year in Israel. There are some strong teams, but we're hoping to win the gold.", added the ever optimistic engine of the team, J. Gorowitz.

MEN'S LAWNBOWLING
The patenting of the lawnmower in England in 1830 catapulted this predominantly colonial sport and made it popular around the British Empire. Even though the sport has no solid roots in Guinea-Bissau, The Maccabi Team is prepared to show that it's a force to be reckoned with. "If we don't make any grave errors and stick to our strict training plan and rigorous diet, I don't see any reason why we couldn't walk away with a gold ", said A.G. Szabo, head of Guinea Bissau's lawnbowling team. "My teammate, Jonathan Schwartz is one of the best players under 80 I've seen anywhere.", added Mr. Szabo

LADIES' BADMINTON
Rachel Hirschler is the team's badminton metal hopeful. Rachel has been playing badminton since she was a little girl. She's currently training in Budapest with the coach of the Hungarian Olympic badminton team preparing for the Maccabiah. When she is not traveling the world or playing badminton or running her own business, she's looking for a husband. The team's mission is to find her a nice Jewish boy in Israel to marry her. Let's make a shidduch! "I'm excited to be playing badminton. I'm in the best shape of my life and I'm looking forward to finishing in the top three.", said Ms. Hirschler.
