With no world record bonuses yet doled out, Sarah Sjostrom has still earned $65,000 in prize money over the first two stops of the 2018 FINA World Cup. She leads all athletes, with $59,750-winner Katinka Hosszu running second.
Hosszu has actually won more per-race prize money, especially with her focus on the Hungarian relays. But Sjostrom won the first cluster points for a $50,000 bonus, while Hosszu was second and only won $35,000.
On the men’s side, Anton Chupkov has won $55,000, most of that from his $50,000 cluster bonus. Michael Andrew has netted $48,000 and Vladimir Morozov just under $41,000.
PRIZE MONEY SYSTEM
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.
The 9-meet series is broken into 3 clusters of 2 or 3 meets each. Each cluster awards bonuses for the top8 athletes in points over those three meets. An athlete must swim all the meets in the cluster to earn a cluster bonus:

- 3rd: $30,000
- 4th: $20,000
- 5th: $10,000
- 6th: $5,000
- 7th: $4,000
- 8th: $3,000
And the series as a whole will give out bonuses to the top 3 men and women in total series points:
- 1st: $150,000
- 2nd: $100,000
- 3rd: $50,000
