How Everyone Did

Katie Ledecky’s scratch in the 1500 free threw a hand grenade into everyone’s picks in that event. Only 1 person (swimmermama) picked Leah Smith to win and 2 (lachlannuke, and eatmybubbles)  picked Ally McHugh 4th. In fact this was the worst picked event in the entire meet. Across all 4 places people picked, there were only 113 correct answers. The best event was the women’s 800 free with 1108 correct answers, and the average event had 530 correct answers (complete list is below).

The women’s 200 IM was pretty close to chalk with the top 5 seeds finishing 1-2-3-5-4, so people did pretty well predicting the outcome. The men’s 200 IM top 5 finishers were also top 5 seeds (1-5-2-4), but nobody picked Abrahm Devine 2nd (though 93% got Chase Kalisz as the winner).

The men’s 800, and women’s 50 were relatively predictable with no huge surprises and slightly above average total numbers of correct picks. The men’s 50 was won by the favorites, but no body picked 4th place Zachary Apple.

So close! 🙂

Hey TYR, how about cap and goggles for the overall top 10 pickers?

That was the first time I played. It made watching the meet more suspenseful and fun.

Wow, way to go Aznswimmaboi12. That was impressive!
