Inbal Pezaro finished third in the 200-meter freestyle on Saturday, winning her, and Israel’s, second medal at the 2012 Paralympics.
Pezaro stopped the clock at 2.56:11 minutes, almost five seconds behind second place. Sarah Rung of Norway won gold with a time of 2.49:74.
On Thursday the 25-year-old Israeli swimmer, paralyzed from below the waist since birth, won the bronze in the 50-meter freestyle. To date, the Kibbutz Yizrael native has won seven paralympic medals.
Pezaro has won multiple medals at various international competitions, and in 2002 was honored by the state, when she was asked to light one of the six ceremonial torches at the official Independence Day ceremony.
