With the 2022 Mare Nostrum Tour having been rescheduled in light of the fact that there is now a 2022 FINA World Aquatics Championships on the calendar, the first stop, Monaco, is fast-approaching, swimswam.com reports.
Slated for Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22, the first meet brings with it a host of talent from around the world, setting up some potentially high-speed showdowns, the swimming news site said.
As a refresher, the Mare Nostrum tour has been held every year since 1994 (with a two-meet series in the preceding two years). Event winners at each meet receive prize money, and overall series winners are awarded prize money based on having the best overall swim of the series.
Overall series winners (top four men and top four women) share 21,000 Euros (24,000 USD), and each meet gives out a minimum of 20,000 Euros (23,000 USD).
