Sjostrom & Le Clos Win World Cup Cluster 1 Titles In Eindhoven

FINA WORLD CUP – EINDHOVEN

Sarah Sjostrom leads five-time defending World Cup champ Katinka Hosszu by a whopping 90 points at the end of cluster 1, taking advantage of four world record bonuses in the first three meets. Meanwhile Chad le Clos leads the men’s points.

Last year’s champ Vladimir Morozov is tied with Kirill Prigoda for second, 66 points back of le Clos.

An event win is worth 12 points and a world record worth 20. The best swim of each meet in FINA points is worth 24. So Sjostrom’s lead is essentially equivalent to just over two world records with one of them standing up as the best overall swim of the meet.

Both Sjostrom and Le Clos win $50,000 bonuses for winning cluster 1. (You can see full money lists and cluster bonuses here). The tour goes on hiatus for a bit until cluster 2 begins in late September. That cluster will now be only 2 meets instead of 3 after the Dubai meet was canceled from the schedule.

If Katinka was allowed to swim everything she wants to shed be a lot closer to the lead, the new rules don’t favor swimmers. hopefully next year they take away the event limits

I think the most fair would be to let swimmers swim as much as they want, but only count four. You get the prize money for each distance you swim, but points to the overall standings only for your best events. That way those who want can swim as much as they want and earn money that way, but the money bonuses is still up for grabs for everyone competing.
