Morozov’s $19K Leads World Cup Paris-Chartes Money List

It’s a rare occurrence: Katinka Hosszu is not the highest money-earner on the FINA World Cup Series.

After one stop, that title belongs to Russia’s Vladimir Morozovwho broke the 100 IM world record en route to a $19,000 weekend.

Morozov’s world record accounted for a $10,000 bonus, which pushed him past Hosszu’s $14,000 Paris total.

The prize money system is similar to what it’s been in previous years, with one major change – mixed relay teams now earn prize money, though they still don’t earn series points.

Here’s a look at the prize money system:

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

2016 Money Lists

*A reminder that these lists track money earned, not necessarily money accepted. Athletes maintaining amateur status for NCAA or high school swimming have restrictions on how much prize money they can accept.
