Sjostrom Cracks $100K In Earnings After Eindhoven World Cup

FINA WORLD CUP – EINDHOVEN

Riding a pair of world records in Eindhoven, Sarah Sjostrom has charged past the six-figure barrier in prize money for the 2017 World Cup, sitting at $104,500 after winning the tour’s opening cluster.

Sjostrom leads by a huge margin of 90 points with 5 of 8 meets remaining. (Full World Cup point standings here). Her cluster win was worth an additional $50,000.

Chad le Clos won the men’s cluster for his own $50,000 payday. He’s the second-winningest swimmer so far in prize money at $63,800. Trailing closely behind is Katinka Hosszu, who has rolled up $61,000, including a $35,000 bonus as the second-best female in the cluster.

Where does FINA get all this money?

Sponsor and TV deal for World Championship (plus a little for the subscription to Fina TV).
Btw it’s not so much, a little more than 700k for an organization which make 170M annually….

Age is catching up to Hosszu. She peaked 2015-16 unfortunately.

ERVINFORTHEWIN

and ?

She’s making less money because she’s swimming less events, which is FINA’s fault not her’s. She actually broke a WR recently.

Refreshing to see an example of women and men being paid fairly and equally (in proportion to their achievements) in sport.

*huge facepalm*
no seriously, educate yourself on that topic

ERVINFORTHEWIN

SWammer is right on this ….

Yes, that’s is how it works in swimming, but it is because the championships are for both male and female competitors.

Almost every other sport does not have their competitions with both male and female athletes, so they separate the money. I would imagine if there was a male swimming World Cup and a female swimming World Cup, the men would get more money. I’m not sexist at all, but that is just the reality of professional sports. Men bring in more money in almost every circumstance

Men bring in more attention, especially from non-swimming fans. More attention and viewers equals more money. For casual observers many of the men’s sports are more exciting because what they are able to accomplish. Of course there are certain sports like soccer that are comparable and still have a pay gap, which isn’t fair. And the female accomplishments in these sports are still incredible but to the average viewer it is more exciting to watch a 45-46 second SCM 100 free for men over an incredible WR in the women’s 100. To casual fans across any sport I’m sure they are able to name more male athletes than female athletes simply because the male athletes gather more attention, whether it… Read more »
