Hosszu’s $43,000 Leads Champions Series Money Earners After Shenzhen

2020 FINA CHAMPIONS SERIES – SHENZHEN

Katinka Hosszu won $43,000 in Shenzhen while swimming neither of the two big-money relay events. Hosszu led all earners by $10,000, though much of that came on three fourth-place finishes.

With just four entrants per event and all four earning prize money, the money lists from the Champions Series are much more volume-skewed than other similar events, like the Pro Swim Series or International Swimming League. Hosszu also had the most event entries with six.

Here’s a refresher on the prize money format, followed by the full money list from Shenzhen. We’ve split each relay prize into four equal pieces and tallied those with each individual member of the relay.
