The 2020 FFN Golden Tour kicks off this weekend, with both domestic and foreign talent taking to the Piscine Jean Bouin pool in memory of Olympic medalist Camille Muffat. Nice is the first stop, with Marseille coming up on March 22nd – March 24th to conclude the 2020 Tour.
In Nice, 35% of the prize money for swimmers will be awarded for results stemming from the morning heats, supporting the meet organizers’ philosophy that there should be fast swimming in the morning. The remaining prize money will be shared according to the evening’s finals, with cash trickling down to 4th place this year.
