There is no let up in Katinka Hosszu’s slaying of world short-course standards: the hint that she was aiming high again came with a ‘slow’ 2:08 in the 200m ‘fly heats, the confirmation delivered in 57.45sec in the 100m medley heats. That makes it five world records and $50,000 of bonus money for the Hungarian double world medley champion in the midst of a the most successful summer of her career

Let’s see if Hosszu manages to claim world record in 400IM this time.

A women’s 400m free is going to be the good one: Lotte, Melanie, Mireia and Lauren.

If only swimming was as lucrative as athletics.. 60k for gold @ world champs and 100k for a world record!

Budgets that may well have something to do with the high number of positive doping tests in track and field…

Aquatics could offer almost a half of the prize money what is on offer at the 2013 Athletics World Championships. It is a decent achievement considering the difference in size between athletics and aquatics as a sport.
