Pezaro wins 3rd bronze at Paralympics

Inbal Pezaro won Israel’s eighth medal in London last night in the swimming pool.

Swimmer Inbal Pezaro won Israel’s first and last medals of the 2012 London Paralympics, ending her pool experience with three bronze medals.

Pezaro won the bronze medal in the 100-meter freestyle S5 event last night thereby notching up Israel’s final tally to eight — hours after quad tennis player Noam Gershony won gold in his event.

The 25-year-old swimmer was the first to put Israel on the podium in the first days of the London 2012 Paralympics — winning bronze medals in the 50-meter freestyle and 200-meter freestyle events – and last to take the podium as well.
