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.
