The inaugural International Swimming League (ISL) gets under way in October - live on Eurosport - and a host of Olympians are set to take part in the new team-based competition.

Eight teams from USA and Europe are gearing up for ISL 2019, which gets under way in Indianapolis on October 5, live on Eurosport and the Eurosport Player.

Each team will consist of 24 athletes (12 men, 12 women), with the ISL claiming around 75% of Olympians and world record holders are expected to feature.
