track and field
Hetzroni was a member of Israel's track and field team at the 1960 Rome Olympics, competing in the women's shot put. She did not reach the qualifying distance of 47'6-3/4" in the preliminary round, and failed to advance to the finals.
One of Israel's top female throwers in the 1960s, Hetzroni broke the Israeli record in the shot put in July 1960, three months before the Olympics, with a distance of 13.02-meters. As of June 2001, it was still the seventh best individual result in Israel's history.
