FINA Swimming World Cup
The venue for the FINA Swimming World Cup in Eindhoven before start of the event.

The FINA Swimming World Cup is an international series of short course (25 m (82 ft)) swimming meets organized by FINA, the International Federation for swimming. Launched in 1988, the FINA Swimming World Cup gathers world-class swimmers in a series of two-day meets organised between August and November each year. Across nine locations, the circuit is structured in clusters (Middle East, Europe and Asia) and distributes a total of prize money reaching US$2.5 million. [1]

Currently, the overall first, second, and third-place winners are awarded prize money.[2] The men's and women's series winners take home $150,000 each, runners-up $100,000, and third-place finishers $50,000, following a prize-money increase announced by FINA in September 2017.

Events

The events are the same for all meets, but the competition order may vary. All events are swum prelims/finals, with the exception of the 800 m (2,600 ft) and 1,500 m (4,900 ft) freestyle which are swum as timed finals (all swimmers swim just once). The meets are held over two days, with preliminary heats in the morning, and finals in the evening. A noted exception to this style are the meets held in Brazil, where prelims have been in the evening with finals the following morning (and hence a three-day format).

On most years, the races are held in short course pools; the exception recently being the season leading up to an Olympic year, where events are swum in long course venues.

Current series events (all in short course pools):

  • Freestyle: 50, 100, 200, 400, 800 (women only) and 1500 (men only)
  • Backstroke: 50, 100 and 200
  • Breaststroke: 50, 100 and 200
  • Butterfly: 50, 100 and 200
  • Individual Medley: 100, 200, and 400
  • Relays: 4 × 50 m mixed freestyle, 4 × 50 m mixed medley, 4 × 100 m mixed freestyle, 4 × 100 m mixed medley[3]
