LOS ANGELES, July 28, 2022 – Doug Gottlieb, host of FOX Sports Radio’s The Doug Gottlieb Show, coached the USA Open Men’s Basketball team to a gold medal at the 2022 World Maccabiah Games, held July 12-26 in Israel. Gottlieb, who continued to host his national radio show for three weeks in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, led a team of Jewish athletes ages 19-26 at the Games, which is the world’s third largest international multi-sport event with nearly 10,000 total participants representing 75 countries competing in 40 sports.
“We had yet another amazing trip, winning all eight of our games and creating a team that operated like a family,” shared Gottlieb. “I cannot thank Maccabi USA and FOX Sports Radio enough for allowing me the opportunity to coach and work, while mentoring these incredible young men.”
This is a fourth gold medal for Gottlieb, who coached the 2017 team, and also won as a player on the U.S. Open Men’s Basketball Team during the Pan-American Maccabi Games in Mexico City in 1999, and the 16th World Maccabiah Games in 2001. Additionally, he took home a bronze medal at the 15th World Maccabiah Games in 1997.
