Israeli swimmer Inbal Pezaro won the bronze medal Thursday in the Paralympic women's 200m Individual Medley.
She finished with a time of 3:38.20. Also making the podium were Spain's Teresa Perales (silver) and Sarah Louise Rung of Norway (gold).
Pezaro, 29, has racked up nine Paralympic medals. In her debut games in Athens in 2004 she won a bronze and a silver. Four years later in Beijing she added three silver medals to her collection and in the 2012 London games swam her way to three more bronzes.
