Viva sport - Dafna

The song that represented Israel during the 1992 Eurovision Song Contest was about that most useless of all pastimes, 'Viva sport', or 'Ze rak sport' in Hebrew. And because there are a lot of people in Europe who think that this pastime is not useless, the song was rewarded with a sixth place in the ranking. Of course, they are wrong.

The song was performed by Dafna Dekel, who was born on May 7, 1966 in Ashdod, Israel. In 1999, when the Contest was hosted in Israel, she presented the programme together with Yigal Ravid and Sigal Shachmon.
