He was born in Hadera, Israel, and is Jewish.
He competed for Israel at the 1984 Summer Olympics with Yoel Sela, at the age of 26, in Los Angeles, California, in Sailing - Mixed Two Person Heavyweight Dinghy, and came in 8th.
Amir competed for Israel at the 1988 Summer Olympics with Yoel Sela, at the age of 30, in Seoul, Korea, in Sailing - Mixed Two Person Heavyweight Dinghy, and came in 4th. They came very close to winning the first Olympic medal in Israeli history, missing one by 11.30 points. Their second race fell on Yom Kippur, and Israeli officials forbade them from competing that day, so they had missed that race. Had they been able to compete in the second race, they would have certainly medaled.
