Melissa Ingram has led a four medal haul for the Kiwis on the first night of the final leg of the FINA World Cup in Singapore today.

The 27-year-old grabbed her fifth victory of the series with an emphatic win in the 200m backstroke, with medals also earned by Glenn Snyders, Matt Stanley and Mitchell Donaldson.

Ingram moved into the top 10 females on overall points by winning the 200m backstroke in 2:04.93, which is her fourth victory in the last five outings over the distance.

She also finished fifth in the final of the 200m freestyle won by overall series leader Katinka Hosszu of Hungary.

Snyders  earned his 14th podium placing of the series but was edged by Australian rival Christian Sprenger in the final of the 50m breaststroke by just 5/100ths of a second, timed at 26.74. The pair will do battle again on the final night of 100m breaststroke.

Matt Stanley finished second in the 400m freestyle behind Australia's Robert Hurley clocking a solid 3:42.17 while clubmate Mitchell Donaldson was third in the 400m individual medley in 4:15.98 won by South Africa's Darian Townsend.

Donaldson was also fifth in the final of the 200m breaststroke, West Auckland's Jessica Marston was eighth in the final of the 800m freestyle won by Hosszu and Taranaki's Dylan Dunlop-Barrett was seventh in the 400m individual medley.

The series concludes in Singapore tonight.
