The 30-year-old Pezaro picked up her 11th career medal at the event, ending the women’s 50-meter freestyle S5 final in third place in a time of 39.31 seconds.

Pezaro entered the championships in Mexico with nine career medals at the event, collecting three golds and six silvers since first scaling the podium in the 2001 edition of the competition.

Pezaro, who is still undecided regarding her participation at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, has nine Paralympic medals on her resume, winning a bronze in Rio last summer after claiming three medals in 2012 and 2008, as well as two medals in 2004.

Earlier Tuesday, the 17-year-old Mark Malyar, who is the youngest of Israel’s five representatives in the championships, took a bronze medal in the men’s 100m breaststroke SB7 final.

He clocked a time of 1:31.53m.
