The FINA Swimming World Cup is an international series of short course (25 m) swimming meets organized by FINA, the International Federation for swimming. The series was started in the 1988/1989, and is open to swimmers from FINA member countries.

Currently, the overall 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers are awarded prize money.[1]

Events

The events are the same for all meets, but the competition order may vary. All events are swum with heats and finals with the exception of the 800 m and 1500 m freestyle, which are swum as timed finals. The meets are held over two days, with heat in the mornings and finals in the evening, with the noted exception of the Brazilian meets where heats have been in the evening with finals the following morning (hence the 3-day format).

Series events (all in 25 m pools):

  • Freestyle: 50 m, 100 m, 200 m, 400 m, 800 m for women, 1500 m for men
  • Backstroke: 50 m, 100 m, 200 m
  • Breaststroke: 50 m, 100 m, 200 m
  • Butterfly: 50 m, 100 m, 200 m
