WORLD NEWS: FINA WORLD CUP MONEY LIST: KATINKA HOSSZU ECLIPSES CHAD LE CLOS' 2011 RACE WINNING TOTAL


BERLIN, Germany, RENANG INDONESIA-October 21. UPDATED 2012 FINA Money List after the completion of the fifth stop of the FINA World Cup in Berlin.

A total of $510,000 was awarded during the first three stops of the circuit with 61 men and 60 women each winning at least $500 for a third-place finish. Notably, these numbers are entitled winnings. Swimmers wishing to protect their NCAA eligibility do not necessarily accept winnings as direct compensation. However, for the sake of complete accuracy, we have included the money that each swimmer has earned.

Winnings breakdown: 

1st Place - $1,500
2nd Place - $1,000
3rd Place - $500

Hosszu now has $45,750 in race winnings to lead all swimmers, and has already eclipse the total race winnings that Le Clos had last year of $45,500 without counting his $100,000 grand prize effort. Hosszu still has three more meets to pile up the cash. Seto leads among the men with $23,000 in winnings.

After the Moscow stop, Kenneth To and Katinka Hosszu extended their leads for the overall $100,000 grand prize. Hosszu is dominating the women's race with 95 points. Daryna Zevina, Britta Steffen and Zsuzsanna Jakabos are tied for second with 45 points each. To leads the men with 90 points, while George Bovell stands second with 67 points. Daiya Seto is third with 65 points.

The overall grand prize is based on the top swim from each stop of the circuit, and not on the most victories.
