Sophie Pascoe has won her third gold in as many days at the World Para Swimming Championships in London.

The nine-time Paralympic gold medallist has comfortably won the final of the women's 100 metre butterfly S9 in another championship record time.

Pascoe stopped the clock at 1min4.35secs, finishing three and a-half seconds clear of her nearest rival.

It's her 11th world title.

She earlier was almost three seconds clear of the field in the heats.

Pascoe will now have a few days off before swimming the 50 metre freestyle S9.

Four other Kiwis were in action on day three of competition.

Hamish McLean has finished sixth in the final of the men's 200 metre indidvidual medley SM6 and Celyn Edwards has come home eighth in the final of the men's 100 metre butterfly S8.

Christopher Arbuthnott and Jesse Reynolds have failed to qualify for the final of the men's 100 metre butterfly S9.
