The Pole on Monday won the women’s 500 metres event at the short-track speed skating World Cup in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Maliszewska finished in 42.677 seconds in the final, ahead of Suzanne Schulting of the Netherlands and Fan Kexin of China.
The 23-year-old in early November became the first Polish short-track speed skater to ever win a World Cup event.
Maliszewska at the time set a national record of 42.587 seconds in the women’s 500 metres while competing in Calgary, Canada.
