    Background: UNITED STATES ATHLETES HAD WON BY FAR THE MOST GOLD MEDALS WHEN THE SEVENTH MACCABIA GAMES CLOSED AT THE RAMAT GAN STADIUM IN ISRAEL YESTERDAY (TUESDAY). THE FIRST THREE PLACES WERE: THE UNITED STATES, 75 GOLD MEDALS, 51 SILVER MEDALS, AND 37 BRONZE MEDALS; ISRAEL, 31 GOLD, 42 SILVER, AND 35 BRONZE; BRITAIN, 15 GOLD, EIGHT SILVER AND 16 BRONZE MEDALS.

    FINALS EVENTS INCLUDED THE 1500 METRES RACE, WON BY RAY ROSEMAN OF BRITAIN IN 3 MINUTES 51.2 SECONDS -- CLIPPING 4.8 SECONDS OFF THE GAMES RECORD -- AND THE 400 METRES RELAY RACE WON BY THE UNITED STATES TEAM IN 42.4 SECONDS. NEARLY 1,400 JEWISH ATHLETES FROM 29 COUNTRIES TOOK PART IN THE GAMES, THE BIGGEST JEWISH GAMES YET HELD.

    THE FINAL MARCH-PAST OF ATHLETES WAS ORGANISED SO THAT THE ATHLETES MARCHED ACCORDING TO THE SPORTS IN WHICH THEY PARTICIPATED, AND NOT AS IN THE OPENING CEREMONY WHEN EACH COUNTRY'S ATHLETES WERE LED BY THE HEADS OF THEIR DELEGATIONS. THE CLOSING CEREMONY ENDED WITH A SPEECH BY MR. LEVI ESKOL, THE ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER, AND AN INVITATION TO THE ATHLETES TO RETURN FOR THE EIGHT MACCABIA GAMES IN FOUR YEARS TIME.
