Koning-Peper makes a splash at Paralympics

    Mirjam de Koning-Peper was the most successful Jewish athlete on week one of the 2012 Paralympic Games.

    The Dutch paraplegic swimmer won gold and bronze at the Aquatics Centre to take her overall Paralympic medal tally to six.

    Koning-Peper, 33, came home first in the Women’s 50m freestyle S6 to win the Netherlands’ fourth gold of the Games, edging out Victoria Arlen of the USA and long-standing friend and double gold medallist Eleanor Simmonds in the process.

    The mother-of-one was born with damaged connective tissue and has had seven anterior cruciate ligament operations. She won four medals, including two golds, in Beijing in 2008.
