Morozov Cracks $30K To Lead World Cup Money Lists After Berlin

FINA WORLD CUP – BERLIN

Another $16,000 haul in Berlin has Vladimir Morozov leading the 2016 World Cup money lists.

Morozov earned $16K at the tour’s opening stop in Paris, then upped his winnings to $16,500 in Berlin, putting him at $32,500 for the series so far.

He’s also in line for the $50,000 cluster bonus, if he competes and maintains his points lead in front of a home Moscow crowd this weekend.

$20,000 of Morozov’s winnings come from his 100 IM world records, set at both meets. He leads all male earners by just over $20K.

Germany’s Philip Heintz and South Africa’s Chad le Clos are also into five-figure winnings so far for the men.

Katinka Hosszu leads the women at $27,000. That’s particularly impressive considering she hasn’t yet earned a world record bonus, the quickest way to make money on the tour. Hosszu has earned her total entirely through medal points, with 14 wins, 4 silvers and 4 bronzes in just two meets so far.

Jeanette Ottesen of Denmark is the other woman over $10,000, reeling in $11.5K so far.

Here’s a look at the money system on the World Cup:

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
