If she somehow improve her best-ever finish for an Israeli female swimmer at the past Olympics, the 2016 Games may well be remembered as the pinnacle of Ivry's career.
Date of Birth: September 2, 1989 (age 26)

Event: Women’s Swimming

Schedule in Rio: 4X100-meter freestyle relay qualifiers, final – August 6; 100-meter butterfly qualifiers, semifinal – August 6, final – August 7; 100-meter breaststroke qualifiers, semifinal – August 7, final – August 8; 200-meter individual medley qualifiers, semifinal – August 8, final – August 9

Career highlight: Bronze medal in 100m butterfly at European Championships in 2012

Outlook for Rio: Ivry has been Israel’s leading female swimmer for much of the past decade, reaching the semifinals in the 200m IM at London 2012. She ended the event in 13th place, the best-ever finish for an Israeli female swimmer at the Olympics, and if she can somehow improve on that in Rio, the 2016 Games may well be remembered as the pinnacle of her career.
