World Cup Money Update: Hosszu & Le Clos continue to pad leads, wallets

As has been the case nearly the entire course of this year’s FINA World Cup circuit, it was Katinka Hosszu and Chad le Clos who brought in the biggest cash hauls on day 1 of the Beijing meet.

Hosszu added $6500 to her season total of $210,500. That’s a relatively light day for the Hungarian, who has earned as much as $42,000 in a single World Cup meet, but has been slowing down recently as the $10,000 world record bonuses become harder to attain.

Le Clos won three events to earn $4500. He now leads the men at an even $130,000. The South African seems to be moving in the opposite direction from Hosszu – he had a slow start in the first cluster while swimming limited event lineups, but has improved his earnings with each meet and is on pace to match his best single meet money haul so far in Beijing.
