Super League wins move Zaferes and Luis to second in 2018 prize money

Big results at the last two Super League Triathlon events have moved Katie Zaferes and Vincent Luis to second in the 2018 Prize Money Rankings, moving them ahead of full-distance stars Lucy Charles and Patrick Lange. (In Zaferes' case it also moved her ahead of World Triathlon Series champ Vicky Holland.)

Ironman World Champion Daniela Ryf remains atop the standings, having won more prize money than any other pro triathlete so far this year, with Mario Mola leading the men's standings, having won $1,500 less than the Swiss star. The $200,000 they've earned in 2018 pales in comparison to many other sports (in beating Novak Djokovic at the Paris Masters tennis tournament on the weekend, for example, Karen Khachanov earned himself a cool $1,110,601.66 - yes, that's 1.1 million), a sad reality for the pros competing in the sport.

With the next Super League event not scheduled until February of next year and most of the top athletes in the standings winding down their seasons, it's hard to imagine there will be major changes in the standings, but the $30,000 bonus from the Challenge Family World Bonus Ranking and the remaining races on the calendar could allow some athletes to move a bit higher in the overall rankings before the end of the year.
