Conor Dwyer and Katinka Hosszu won the overall Arena Pro Swim Series points battles, securing $10,000 each for their consistent efforts this season.

Dwyer finished with $12,200 in race winnings and 61 points to win the men’s title for the second year in a row, while Tyler Clary finished second with $8,800 and 44 points.  Connor Jaeger placed third overall with $8,600 and 43 points.

Hosszu, who dominated on four of the six stops, wound up with $18,600 in race winnings and 93 points to win the big check for the second in as well.  Hosszu, however, was unable to win the BMW lease as an international swimmer.

Caitlin Leverenz, however, won the lease for another year as the top American with $8,600 in winnings and 43 points.  Elizabeth Beisel, who wound up leaving the series after the Orlando stop, took third with $7,700 and 38.5 points.

This year, the Arena Pro Swim Series gave out approximately $300,000 in prize money, double last year’s edition.

The per-event prize money and Arena Pro Swim Series scoring system awards swimmers prize money  and points based on first-, second-, and third-place performances at each meet in the Championship final only. The prize money and scoring system is as follows:

  • First place = $1,000 (five points)
  • Second place = $600 (three points)
  • Third place = $200 (one point)

 

There will be separate Arena Pro Swim Series standings for male and female swimmers. To be eligible for the BMW lease, a swimmer must (i) be a U.S. citizen, (ii) be a USA Swimming member, (iii) possess a valid U.S. driver’s license, and (iv) no longer be NCAA eligible. The BMW prize will be offered to the highest finishing eligible male and female athlete who meets all the criteria, even if he/she is not the overall points winner for the series.
