A shortened 2nd Cluster didn’t have much effect on the FINA World Cup Series, as Katinka Hosszu and Cameron van der Burgh remained atop the point standings after the turmoil of the Singapore stop.

The cluster’s final stop in Singapore was shortened due to air quality concerns, so only the second day’s events earned World Cup points. Still, Hosszu and van der Burgh led the cluster points handily heading into the meet, and maintained their leads through the Singapore event.

Maybe most interesting were the meet performance bonuses. All 3 top performers for the men came out of the same event, the 100 breaststroke. On the women’s side, Australia swept the performance bonuses again with Emily Seebohm, Cate Campbell and Bronte Campbell.

The top 6 finishers in each gender will earn cluster bonuses starting at $50,000 apiece. ### WORLD CUP SCORING Medal Points Each individual event yields points for the top 3 finishers. • Gold: 12 points • Silver: 9 points • Bronze: 6 points World Record Bonuses Each world record yields 20 points.

So from a spectator standpoint it is about as interesting as watching someone go to work for the day to earn a paycheck. The olympics or World champs or US Nationals by contrast (assuming the best attend) is not about money it is about seeing the very best swimming with the money secondary. Hank 6 years ago Gina that is part of the problem. It is too much like work for the athletes and not enough like major international Hank 6 years ago And each stop should be 3 days not 2 Hank 6 years ago The World Cup format is poorly devised. There are too many meaningless stops. 1 event per region Winner takes all should be the go. One European, one Asian, one Middle eastern stop. It can rotate every 3-4 years back to the same city. Unless the best swimmers show to every stop the World Cup and post world class times the WC is meaningless. Gina Rhinestone Reply to Hank 6 years ago Why are you upset that some ppl earn money from swimming? As to where it is held , that would be cities putting their hand up. I don’t know how much of that$60,000 they got but I’m sure it will come in handy for Christmas . It is what ppl do , they go out to earn \$ & maybe get some nice things after the rent .etc is paid .

I feel as though the difference between breaking a WR and tying a WR is a tad steep.

Imagine Gyurta goes 2:07.01 in the 200 breast-

HOLY CRAP WHAT A PERFORMANCE NEW RIO FAVORITE BACK2BACK OLYMPIC GOLDS!!! 10 points

Now he goes 2:07.00-

HOLY CRAP WHAT A PERFORMANCE NEW RIO FAVORITE BACK2BACK OLYMPIC GOLDS!!!! 20 points

It’s a ten point difference for a basically immaterial and indistinguishable difference. Tying a WR should be worth at least 18 IMO.

Neither Sakai nor Shirai/Nakamura/Elliot/Prudnikov/To etc… attended cluster #1 so where did you find their 12 points?

Please note also that in cade of tie both swimmers get the points. Eg’two winners 12 each. – or two bronze 6 each
