Prior to the start of the second cluster of the FINA/airweave Swimming World Cup, the FINA decided to distribute more money to the best swimmers in the overall and cluster rankings.

This regulation applies as from the start of the second cluster next weekend in Hong Kong.

Now the three best ranked men and women will receive US$ 150,000, US$ 100,000 and US$ 50,000, this gives a total of US$ 600,000. Up to this year’s FINA World Cup, the male and female winners got 100.000 US$, second placed athletes 50.000 and third best overall swimmers 30.000 US$.

In addition, also the bonuses for the cluster rankings (based on the overall performances in the cluster), the best eight men and eight women will now receive prize money, while only the first six were entitled to this reward in the past. The new prize money distribution will be a sum of  US$ 942,000 for the three clusters.

Cluster bonuses for best overall performances:

1st place – US$ 50,000
2nd place – US$ 35,000
3rd place – US$ 30,000
4th place – US$ 20,000
