One meet into the 2019 Pro Swim Series and Katie Ledecky leads all money-earners and also sits atop the chase for the $10,000 top swim bonus.
Ledecky won four events (the 200, 400 and 800 frees plus the 400 IM) and took home $6,000 in earnings. She also tied with Regan Smith for the top FINA points swim. On the men’s side, Ryan Murphy is the leader at $5,500. Smith and Murphy had the best prelims swims, earning $1500 bonuses. Ledecky and Smith accounted for all of the top 5 FINA point swims on the women’s side. Murphy is the narrow leader on the men’s side in FINA point swims, edging Josh Prenot‘s 200 breast by 2 FINA points.
Meanwhile in the SwimSquad relays, the winning team (Phoebe Bacon/Nic Fink/Gianluca Urlando/Simone Manuel from the DiRadSquad) earned $250 apiece while the team with the fastest reaction time add-up (Kathleen Baker/Kevin Cordes/Kendyl Stewart/Michael Chadwick from the Beisel Bunch) also earned $250 apiece.
