The third night of the 2019 Parapan American Games largely continued the trend of the first two nights – dominance from the Brazilian and Mexican teams – but also saw the United States log its first podium sweep of the meet and win nine medals on the day.
American Hannah Aspden led that sweep with a 1:13.20 in the women’s S9 100 back. Lizzi Smith, who set a meet record in the S9 50 free on night two, took silver in 1:14.57; she also won a gold medal on night one in the S9 100 fly. Rounding out the sweep was Amanda Palyo in 1:20.23.
