Hosszu, Sakai Earn Biggest Beijing World Cup Payouts

Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu and Japan’s Masato Sakai earned the biggest paychecks of the Beijing World Cup in multi-medal performances.

Hosszu continued to lead all earners with $7500, bringing her season total to $86,500. Hosszu will very likely be cracking six figures by the end of the next meet in Singapore this coming weekend. The series will hand out cluster bonuses after the Singapore stop ends the second cluster, and both Hosszu and Sakai are in line for big bonus checks.

Saka won $4500, just nipping series leader Cameron van der Burgh. Those two will compete for the $50,000 Cluster 2 champion bonus. Van der Burgh and Hungary’s David Verraszto each won $4000.
