Sjostrom Over $30K, Hosszu, Kromowidjojo Earn WR Bonuses In Berlin

FINA WORLD CUP – BERLIN

Sarah Sjostrom still leads all money-earners after two stops of the 2017 World Cup, but Katinka Hosszu and Ranomi Kromowidjojo both earned $10,000 world record bonuses to close the gap in Berlin.

Hosszu was the top money-earner in Berlin, making $16,000 on a perfect 4-for-4 in wins along with a new 100 IM world record. Kromowidjojo made $14,700 on a combination of one individual gold, one silver, a world record and two winning mixed-gender relays. Sjostrom won two golds and two silvers for $5000 total.

For the men, Chad le Clos was the top earner, matching his $4500 total from Moscow. He now leads all men with $9,000 thus far.

2016 Comparison

Sjostrom is outpacing Hosszu’s earnings mark from this point last year, but le Clos is well behind Vladimir Morozov‘s pace from last year, having not broken a world record yet.

On the other hand, the new World Cup rules now have almost three times as many women winning prize money this year compared to this point last year, though many of them won only small amounts. More than twice as many men have won money compared to this point last year.

PRIZE MONEY SYSTEM

The prize money system has changed in 2017 – full series changes laid out in detail here.

Event Prizes

Prize money is given to the top 6 in each individual event:

  • Gold: $1500
  • Silver: $1000
  • Bronze: $500
  • 4th: $400
  • 5th: $300
  • 6th: $200

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

Have I got this correct: if a swimmer finishes top in all 3 clusters they will get $50k prize money from each, then finish 1st overall and get the $100k, so their is a chance to win $250k on top of their individual race prize money ?

Wish the world cup would come to the US or Arena Pro swim series upped its prize money. As a kid, always wanted to be a great swimmer and a professional athlete. Looks like that is possible now. That’s a lot of prize money. Wish there was something like a Masters circuit, too. LOL. Hey, golf has the Senior PGA. They even play on TV, and there’s no way you can tell me that watching golf on tv is way more exciting than swimming!!! A lot of my peers are still swimming and still very fast and every bit as competitive. Look at all the world records that were broken at USMS Summer Nationals! It’s exciting to watch when significant… Read more »

It seems like a lot of prize money, but that’s really not enough to live on.

Katinka got like 300k last year, you can live off that for a year especially in Hungary, Katinka probably lives a very comfortable life. Alia Atkinson made like 100 and something thousand dollars a few years ago and that goes a long way in Jamaica. Should there be more prize money yes, is it abysmal how little there is no.

About 25x more than the average in Hungary per year.
