Los Angeles Current won the third match of the International Swimming League (ISL) season and have moved top of the overall standings, thanks in no small part to Béryl Gastaldello.

The French swimmer won two standard races and also came out on top in the women's 50 metres freestyle skins contest today in Budapest.

That meant Gastaldello ended the match with 78 ranking points - 17.5 more than any other athlete.

Abbey Weitzeil, who won two Olympic medals for the United States at Rio 2016, was the swimmer Gastaldello edged out in the final of that skins race.

A Current team mate, Weitzeil finished with 40.5 ranking points, the third-best total.

Fellow American Ryan Murphy, a triple gold medallist at Rio 2016, finished on 60.5 ranking points after a perfect display in the men's 50m backstroke skins, winning all three races.

Murphy also swims for Current, and the Los Angeles-aligned team ended the match on 535.5 points.
