Hosszu Passes Morozov For World Cup Money Lead At $91K

2016 FINA World Cup Moscow

Vladimir Morozov led the World Cup money lists through two legs, but as his world record bonus opportunities dried up, defending series champ Katinka Hosszu caught him for the money lead in Moscow.

Hosszu had her best money haul of the 2016 series, pulling in $14,500 to pass up Morozov and climb to $91,500 for the series as a whole.

Hosszu has been remarkably consistent, earning $14K in Paris, $13K in Berlin and $14.5K in Moscow. The other $50,000 came from her cluster bonus.

Morozov had a similar meet money-wise to his first two ($16K in Paris, $16.5K in Berlin), but was missing a $10,000 world record bonus and only made $6,000. He’s still the highest-earning man at $88,500.

PRIZE MONEY SYSTEM

Event Prizes

Prize money is given to the top 3 in each individual event:

  • Gold: $1500
  • Silver: $1000
  • Bronze: $500

NEW IN 2016: 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 9-meet series is broken into 3 clusters of 3 meets each. 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

Series Bonuses

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

  • 1st: $100,000
  • 2nd: $50,000
  • 3rd: $30,000

World Cup Money Lists After Cluster 1

Note: these lists compile money earned, not necessarily money accepted. Athletes maintaining amateurism status for high school or NCAA swimming have limits to how much prize money they can accept.

Women:

Alia Atkinson was ineligible for the cluster bonus after not competing at the Moscow leg of cluster 1.

Go Katinka and Vlad

^ How did this innocent comment get more down votes than up votes?

Scott Morgan

Because more people are cheering for different swimmers?

Oh, good point.

So there is money in swimming professionally. At least if you are top 6-7 from what I can see. I imagine travel cost eat up a lot of the earnings. With all that said, where is all the representation from the US? and why can’t the Arena Pro series offer this kind of money?

Alot of US swimmer do not want to keep with competition after Olympics due to the normal US break occuring in August. Additionally, those swimmers who are not pro must return back to college swimming and these meets wouldnt make since for them. However must say Katie Meili has been doing wellcoming of the individual bronze.

They got tons of frequent flier miles

So, about one million dollars spent already. How much did they get in return? Is this business profitable? If it is so then we should see plenty of similar tournaments. If it isn’t then at who’s expense was it done? FINA? If that is how it is then Federations’ money could’ve been spent more efficiently.
