World Record Bonus

- A payment of US$ 10,000.- is made for each new World Record set at an Event but limited to a maximum pot of US$ 50,000.-.
If more World Records than the agreed maximum pot can cover are set, all World Record holders will then receive an equal share of the overall amount, rather than the US$ 10,000.- per World Record.
- Such payment will be symbolically made with a presentation cheque to be handed out at the awards ceremony.
- If in one same race (heat or final) two (2) or more swimmers better the World Record, only the winner of that race will receive the bonus.
- World Records achieved at a split will not be considered for this bonus (e.g.: World Record for a 50m achieved at the 50m Split of a 100m race). Any World Record bonuses will be paid for performances over the actual competition distance. No bonus is due if a World Record is equalled.
