The Pole on Sunday claimed bronze in the women’s 500 metres event at the short-track speed skating World Cup in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Hungary’s Petra Jászapáti won the event, ahead of second-placed Lara van Ruijven of the Netherlands.
The Polish skater last month won the women’s 500 metres at a World Cup stop in Salt Lake City, Utah.
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.
