Katinka Hosszu is a single event win away from becoming the third swimmer this year to crack six figures in World Cup earnings. Meanwhile Vladimir Morozov‘s $126,400 still leads all earners this season.

Hosszu earned $7,000 in prize money in Tokyo, highest among all women. That was thanks in large part to four event wins, plus two more minor medals. The only bigger earner in Tokyo was Xu Jiayuwho made $14,500, but made $10,000 of that thanks to a world record in the 100 back. Hosszu has made $98,700 this season, and is essentially guaranteed to break six figures if she competes at all in Singapore.

Morozov didn’t get any money for tying a world record in the 100 IM, missing a $10,000 bonus by .01 seconds. Still, he leads all earners with $126,400 and is in line to make another $50,000 for winning Cluster 3 and a further $150,000 for winning the overall series title. Morozov is heavily favored to win both.

PRIZE MONEY SYSTEM

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

  • Gold: $1500
  • Silver: $1000
  • Bronze: $500
  • 4th: $400

Prize money is also given to the top 3 mixed relay teams (though no series points are earned).

  • Gold: $3000

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.

The prize money is awful. Can the not get anyone to attend the meets? Are the meets not broadcast?
