National champion Ana María Izurieta led Spain to victory over France at a dual meet held Saturday evening in Madrid.

The Ecuador-born Izurieta (55.35) led a Spanish sweep of the all-around medals, edging María Paula Vargas (55.15) and Beatriz Cuesta (54.60).

The victory over their French neighbors comes a week after the Spanish squad surprised Great Britain in Ipswich. The recharged Spanish women scored 220.85 in Madrid, improving from the 217.75 they scored in England.

Marine Brevet led the struggling French squad, which lost by more than 8.5 points. World bronze medalist Youna Dufournet, who skipped this year's Europeans to concentrate on school, competed two events only.

The Spanish women's hot streak will be put to the test again next Saturday, when the team hosts a dual meet against Italy in Madrid.
