Mary Fisher's second gold highlighted a four-medal haul as New Zealand's Para-swimming team continued a strong showing at the IPC World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland.
New Zealand swimmers featured in four finals and came away with four medals on the third night, taking their total to eight on Thursday (NZ time).
They have also qualified four slots for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
Fisher, the Wellington 22-year-old, won the women's S11 100m backstroke in a championship record time of 1:19.77, comfortably ahead of Germany's Daniela Schulte and Ukraine's Maryna Piddubna.
London 2012 Paralympian Rebecca Dubber swam the race of her life to win silver and a personal best time in the women's S7 400m freestyle.
It was Dubber's first world championships medal and her time of 5:25.34 was the fastest she has swam since London.
"Tonight I put four years of injury struggles behind me, trusted in my process and swam beyond what I thought I was physically and mentally capable of," Dubbert said.
"I'm so incredibly excited and proud of what I have achieved."
Cameron Leslie won silver in the men's SM4 150m individual medley.
Leslie has dominated this event since the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games and it took Russian Roman Zhdanov to swim a world record time of 2:25.24 to beat him.
Cameron recorded 2:26.55 - his fastest time since London 2012 Paralympic Games which bodes well for 2016.
Sophie Pascoe continued to grow her personal haul, winning bronze in the women's SB9 100m breaststroke.
Dutch 14-year-old Chantalle Zijderveld stormed to her first career world title ahead of medallist China's Meng Zhang.
