Katinka Hosszu leads all money-earners with $11,500 in winnings through the 2018 Kazan World Cup.

The five-time tour champion won five golds, three silvers and one bronze, plus swam on two bronze-medal mixed relays for Hungary. No other athlete is yet over $7500 after Kazan, which is the first of seven stops on the tour.

Sarah Sjostrom is the women’s points runner-up, and made $7500 in Kazan. Men’s points leaders Vladimir Morozov ($6500) and Michael Andrew ($6000) have made the next-most, with the difference coming because of Morozov’s two relay silvers.


Event Prizes

Prize money is given to the top 6 in each individual event:

  • Gold: $1500
  • Silver: $1000
  • Bronze: $500
  • 4th: $400
  • 5th: $300
  • 6th: $200

Prize money is also given to the top 3 mixed relay teams (though no series points are earned).

  • Gold: $3000
  • Silver: $2000
  • Bronze: $1000

In our money lists, we’ve given each relay member one quarter of that money, which amounts to $750 for a win, $500 for second and $250 for third.

World Record Bonuses

Each world record is worth a $10,000 bonus.

Cluster Bonuses

The 7-meet series is broken into 3 clusters. Each cluster awards bonuses for the top 6 athletes in points over those three meets. An athlete must swim all 3 meets in the cluster to earn a cluster bonus:

  • 1st: $50,000
  • 2nd: $35,000
  • 3rd: $30,000
  • 4th: $20,000
  • 5th: $10,000
  • 6th: $5,000

And the series as a whole will give out bonuses to the top 3 men and women in total series points:

  • 1st: $150,000
  • 2nd: $100,000
  • 3rd: $50,000

The points list is not the official one which only counts three results plus strong times.

From US nationals, to Pan Pacs, to Kazan — Michael Andrew is really coming of age as an elite professional who is proving himself!


Some explain to me why Michael Andrew still lives at home

Siphiwe Baleka

Because that is the environment that works best for him and has allowed him to reach this level. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.


He is only 19. Did you say same thing to Chad LeClos at 19. How about Kyle Chalmers at 19? How about Cameron McElroy? Should I continue? Adam Peaty? James Guy? Japanese studs? The American NCAA isn’t the only way to get to the top. Even Michael Phelps was living at home at 19.


His training facility was in his backyard. Maybe he will get his own place when he gets to Cali
