At Mike’s Place, a popular
hangout in downtown Jerusalem where the American, British and Canadian
flags fly alongside that of Israel, Beto Capon took in women’s swimming.
The 25-year-old call center worker from Mexico City who’s been living
in Israel for four years still roots for Mexico when the Olympics roll
“Watching the Olympics from here is weird for me,” said Capon
“Here I don’t have fans to share the experience with,” he said.
