Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced it will provide financial support to Israeli sportswoman Yarden Gerbi, 2013 Judo World Champion in the under 63kg (139 lbs.) category and ranked first worldwide, and will sponsor her as she attempts to qualify for and compete in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

This sponsorship is part of Mellanox’s tradition of donating part of its profits to communities in Israel and the United States. Mellanox is committed to fostering and encouraging excellence and achievements of individuals, and is actively involved in a variety of education programs, technology access programs, sports programs and cultural activities. Mellanox attaches great importance to rewarding and encouraging excellence and believes in the power of excellence to improve society as a whole and to build a better future. In supporting leading athlete Yarden Gerbi, the company hopes to help her focus on training and preparing for upcoming competitions, especially the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

“I am very happy that Mellanox will support me as it will allow me to dedicate myself to the excellence, values and hard work required of a world champion,” said Yarden Gerbi. “During my visit to the company, I got to know its history, its people and its unique way of thinking. It fascinated me. The company’s support gives me the strength to move forward toward my next goals, and I hope to continue fulfilling our dreams, the main one of which is the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.”

“We believe in encouraging excellence and achievements while strengthening the infrastructure of education, science and technology, sports and culture. We are involved in order to encourage talents, and enable initiatives and successes of individuals in various domains for the better of our society,” said Eyal Waldman, president and CEO of Mellanox Technologies. “We are proud of Yarden’s talent, determination and achievements and are happy to accompany her on her career path on the way to the Olympic Games in 2016. We hope that more will follow Yarden’s hard work and success and achieve worldwide recognition as Yarden has by becoming the World Champion.”

Mellanox also supports the judoka Tommy Arshansky, an outstanding Israeli athlete who won the bronze medal at the European Championship in judo in the under 60kg category held in Budapest this year. The company also granted the talented violinist Gal Eckstein a scholarship for his musical studies.
