FINA World Cup Money List: More Than $2 Million Awarded

LAUSANNE – AS has become our tradition, Swimming World kept an up-to-date listing of the cash won during the FINA World Cup.  This year, more than $2 million was up for grabs during a seven-stage, three-cluster setup.

The last two years, the Iron Lady Katinka Hosszu turned some heads by winning about half-a-million in cash on the FINA World Cup circuit along, and she finished this year with more than $1 million in three years of winnings.

Swimmers are racing for $1,500 (1st), $1,000 (2nd) and $500 (3rd) for podium placements, and also are earning up to $10,000 per world-record performance. That’s $102,000 in just race winnings available at each stop this year.

After 14 nights of racing, Hosszu and Chad le Clos closed out the FINA World Cup with the overall points wins.
