Maher Abu Rmeileh is making history. The 28-year old judo champion from East Jerusalem is the first Palestinian to ever qualify on points for the Olympics. Next July, he will compete for Palestine in the London Games. Until now, the Olympic Committee, which recognizes Palestine as a state, invited Palestinian athletes as honorary participants. Al-Monitor met with Maher Abu Rmeileh on June 17 and his many fans, including his coach.

A story by Sophie Claudet, Muayad Alayan and Raed Khoury.
