Scoring

As a reminder, teams score points in each race. Relays count for double. (Skins count triple but those races didn’t take place today.)

Individual Event Relay Event Skins Race
1st 9 18 27
2nd 7 14 21
3rd 6 12 12
4th 5 10 10
5th 4 8 4
6th 3 6 3
7th 2 4 2
8th 1 2 1

Teams are penalized if an athlete does not appear an athlete does not appear for their race (DNS), does not finish their race (DNF), or disqualifies (DQ). Teams will also lose points if an athlete is slower than a certain benchmark time in any event:

  • No-show (DNS): -4 points or -8 per relay
  • Did not finish (DNF): -2 points or -4 per relay
  • Skins races:
  • A DNS in round 1 is -4. In round 2 it moves up to -8, and in the final to -12.
  • A DNF in round 1 is -2. In round 2 it moves up to -4, and in the final to -6.
  • Slower than benchmark time: -1 point for individuals or -2 points for relays from what the swimmer or relay would have scored. (An 8th-place individual going slower than one of these times would score zero points. A 7th-place individual going slower than one of these times would score one).

So in theory since these meets aren’t ratified by FINA doesn’t that mean that they can wear won’t suit they want? Like a full body suit?

The ISL hasn’t published any formal suit guidelines, but it appears as though they’re generally following FINA rules. It seems like their strategy is partially hinged on making sure that when FINA does things like not counting the times, it makes FINA look petty, because the meet in theory is following all competitively-geared rules and should be seen as legitimate swims.

I’m sure this has been discussed: does ISL or World Cup pay more for swimmers? Or is it about the same and just a matter of where you want to go? Or are there a butt ton of complexities regarding maximum number of events and other considerations?

It’s hard to quantify, because of the pay structures. The ISL is touting somewhere in the neighborhood of $4 million to athletes in year 1 in 7 meets. The World Cup gives out around $2.5 million in prize money. We don’t have as much clarity on what all is paid for by FINA, if athletes get appearance fees or what. We know that some, but not all, get travel stipends. We also know that some ISL swimmers don’t have salaries and are swimming strictly for the hopes of prize money. So, on balance, our best guess is that ISL gives out more prize money. But, the good news is that because of how the schedule works out, athletes can actually… Read more »

At the end of ISL season will we know how much each ISL member earned? This information is provided by Swimswam in FINA World Cup case.
