WORLD RECORD BONUS

- A payment of USD 10'000 is made for each new World Record set at an Event. The payment is made after receipt of the negative Doping Control test result.

- 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.
