The Sports Examiner: I’m in the money!

PALM DESERT, Aug. 29, 2016 – You’ve read plenty of stories about Olympians who are barely scraping by given the paltry amounts of money available to many Olympic sports.

Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu is making sure she isn’t one of them. Less than a week after the Games in Rio ended, she swam in 13 events in the first FINA Swimming World Cup of the season in Paris and collected $14,000 in prize money over two days!

She knows what she’s doing: she won $325,500 in the Grand Prix in 2015! Full coverage of the Swimming World Cup and:
