– In case of tie, the second best performance is taken into account (as per the present rules)

2. Medallists in all individual events, with the following score:

3. Bonus for World Record performance: 20 points

– In case of tie with one of the swimmer having a WR performance: first is the swimmer with WR performance.
– In case of tie with swimmers having WR performance: first is the swimmer with best WR performance (in accordance to the FINA Points Table).
– In case of tie with Performance and Ranking points: first is the swimmer with the higher number of Ranking points.
– In case of tie with Ranking points: first is the swimmer with the higher number of Ranking points in any of the cluster’s leg.

2. To win cluster points, a swimmer MUST compete on all stops of that cluster.

    Did Chad LeClos compete in Japan? I don’t think so can’t be eligable for cluster bonus for Japan/Doha/Dubai if he was not in Japan.
