New Zealand’s most decorated Paralympian, Sophie Pascoe, has won a bronze medal in the women’s S9 100 metres backstroke.

Pascoe, the world record holder in the event, was leading at the 50m turn and looked like claiming her 10th gold medal.

However, the Kiwi was unable to maintain that pace. In the end she finished third behind American Hannah Aspden and Nuria Marques Soto of Spain.

It was Pascoe’s 17th Paralympic medal overall, and second medal of these Games after she earlier picked up silver in the 100 metres breastroke.

She now has nine gold, seven silver and one bronze medal.

When asked about adding a bronze medal Pascoe had this to say; “First ever bronze medal from a Paralympic Games, so a new colour to add to the collection! We’re calling this one Rosé!”

Pascoe will be back on Tuesday in the Women’s 100m Freestyle S9 and again on Day 8 (Wednesday) in the Women’s 200m Individual Medley SM9 and again, Day 9 (Thursday) in the Women’s 100m Butterfly.
