Notes: $50,000 available in record-setting prize money to be split as follows: If a Male and Female both set a new American or World Record, the payout will be $25,000 each to the Male and Female setting the record. If only one new American or World Record is set, the payout will be $50,000 to the athlete setting the new record, whether it be an American Record, a World Record or both. So, for example, if a Male sets a new American Record, and a Male and a Female each set a new World Record, the Male setting the new American record will receive $16,666 and the Male and Female setting the new World Records will also each receive $16,666. The total payout for American and World records will not exceed $50,000.
