With the 2013 FINA World Cup now complete, the King and Queen of the competition both walked away with more than $300,000 out of the more than $2 million awarded throughout the circuit.

Hungary's Katinka Hosszu won the tour for the second year straight, this time pulling in $365,000 in earning to wind up with more than half-a-million in winnings in the past two years. That's the largest cash pool ever won in an individual circuit by a swimmer. And, with the way FINA is throwing serious money at the World Cup as the top professional circuit in the world, even more cash could be offered in 2014.

South Africa's Chad Le Clos finished atop the men's points race, earning $305,500 when all was said and done, the second-largest amount of race winnings ever by a professional swimmer.


Russia's Vlad Morozov rode his sprint prowess to some serious money as well. He finished with $183,000 overall, while Jamaica's Alia Atkinson took home $136,000 in winnings with her breaststroke/sprint IM abilities. Spain's Mirieia Belmonte Garcia also broke $100,000 with $119,500 in winnings, while World Cup veteran Bobby Hurley took home a hefty $97,750.

Swimmers raced for $1,500 (1st), $1,000 (2nd) and $500 (3rd) for podium placements, and also earned up to $10,000 per world-record performance. Initially, a $50,000 world-record bonus pool was set up, but FINA elected to bypass the cap, and Hosszu took full advantage with six world-record performances.

World Record Bonuses
Katika Hosszu: $60K (200 IM x 2; 100 IM x 3; 400 IM)
Mireia Belmonte Garcia: $20K (400 free; 800 free)
Chad Le Clos: $20K (200 fly x 2)
Ranomi Kromowidjojo: $10K (50 free)
Ruta Meilutyte: $10K (100 breast)
Yuliya Efimova: $10K (50 breast)

Additionally, FINA set up three clusters, where swimmers earn money based on their performances within specific clusters. The European leg dished out $200,000 extra in winnings with Hosszu and Le Clos collecting the top prizes. An additional $306,000 was awarded following the Middle East and Asian clusters.
