Shelby, who last week also won a gold medal in the 100-meter backstroke and then became the first Israeli Arab to ever win an Olympic medal, led today throughout the event and raised the balance of the Israeli delegation to five gold medals, four of them in the pool. In Tokyo.

The last time Israel won five gold medals was at the 1988 Seoul Games.

Earlier today, swimmer Yulia Gordichuk competed in the 100-meter butterfly final and finished in seventh place.

Gordichuk lacked 27 hundredths to equal the Israeli record, stopping the clock after 1: 13.35.
