Morozov, Hosszu Win World Cup Cluster 1 Points Bonuses

2016 FINA World Cup Moscow

Vladimir Morozov and Katinka Hosszu topped the 2016 World Cup’s first cluster, earning big bonuses and carrying convincing points leads into the next two clusters.

The 9-meet series is broken up into 3 clusters of 3 meets each. The points winners of each cluster earn $50,000 bonuses while the overall series winners earn $100,000.

Morozov leads the men by about 34 points, which is a pretty sizable margin. That would be the equivalent of about 3 event wins or a win/world record combo.

But Hosszu’s lead is even more suffocating. She leads the women by 277 points – more points than anyone else on the series, Morozov included, has scored so far.

Michael Andrew eve on the list? Seriously who is sponsoring him? Why? What’s the income gain? Terrible decision. Go pro once you’ve earned it. If you haven’t earned it take the scholarship and degree
