This is her second world championship, eight years after her first title in 2003. European champion Zofia Noceti-Klepacka of Poland took second place.

Israeli President Shimon Peres called to congratulate Korzits. “If I had long arms I’d send them to hug you in the name of all the State of Israel. You fought the win and beat it with force stronger than any male force – feminine force. You are wonderful. The people love you ” Peres said.
