This weekend, Serbia will host its Grand Prix, with a purse of prize money available.

Prize Money

    • Bonus €200 if swim scores more than 850 FINA points
  • Best male & female competitors of the meet: €300
    • Determined by the sum of the FINA points achieved in three different events in either heats or finals

Series Points

The Serbia Grand Prix is the second stop of a three-meet series, the first taking place in Sarajevo and the final stop in Banja Luka in Bosnia & Herzegovina. At each stop, the top four overall male and female athletes earn points towards an overall series title. The top athletes are selected, as above, by taking the three best FINA points performances in different events at each individual Grand Prix. The top man and woman at each meet earns 4 points, the second-placers 3, the third-placers 2 and the fourth-placers 1.

At the end of the series, the top three men and women in series points earn bonuses:

  • 1st: €1000
  • 2nd: €750
  • 3rd: €500
