Le Clos hits six figures, Hosszu over $200,000 on World Cup tour after Moscow

With the Moscow World Cup ending the tour’s second cluster, Chad le Clos and Katinka Hosszu each benefited from the tour’s cluster bonuses to crack new barriers in the money lists.

Le Clos rose above $100,000 for the first time on the tour, courtesy of his $9,000 weekend in Moscow and the $50,000 bonus for scoring the most points in the second cluster. That second cluster included the Moscow World Cup and the Hong Kong World Cup earlier in the week.

Hosszu, meanwhile, cracked the $200,000-mark, earning $12,000 in Moscow and her own $50,000 cluster bonus. Hosszu has earned over $100,000 more than any other woman on the tour this season.

The cluster bonuses go down to the top 6 swimmers in each cluster – but to earn those bonuses, the swimmers must compete at all meets within that cluster. That means that although Jamaica’s Alia Atkinson scored the 4th-most points of cluster 2, she doesn’t get a bonus because she only competed in Hong Kong.

There were also a few ties, which are broken by which swimmer earned the most points for top 3 finishes, not counting the FINA Point performance bonuses given out at each meet. That means Thomas Fraser-Holmes won his tie for 3rd with Marco Koch and Daryna Zevina won hers for fourth with Evelyn Verraszto.

Ka-ching Ho$$zu! Congrats!

Chad’s the greatest swimmer I’ve ever seen

King Chad reigns supreme. Bring on the SC world championships. It’s going to be a rout, with a couple of world record thrown in. Phelps can’t take a good Whipping……luckily he now has a plausible excuse for his absence.

Talk to me when “King” Chad breaks 4 individual world records at a single world championship.

No need. It’s King Chad, not GOAT Chad.

We gotta admit that he is swimming really well on short course, but stop calling him “King” he only has two olympic medals.

so funny and arrogant ! go on , keep laughing . We will laugh one day too . While i respect Chad , i have never seen a butterflier of his level with such an ugly technique ! how’s that sound ?

Are you going to laugh when Phelps comes 3rd at OT, or 4th at the Olympics if he qualifies? I won’t. It will be a sad day.

Not at all. I mean he has nothing to prove 18 gold medals is more than Chad could probably win
