How Everybody Did

The field of entries did pretty well predicting the women’s 200 free and men’s 200 back, but did less well predicting the other events. 1% of entries had Blake Pieroni 2nd and Zane Grothe 3rd in the 200 free. The women’s and men’s 200 breast went completely against predictions. 67% of entries had Katie Meili 1st and 98% had her in the top 4; she was 7th. Only one person picked Miranda Tucker 3rd (well done Kru) and no one picked Kayla Brumbaum 4th (or anywhere in their top 4). For the men, no one picked Nicolas Fink 2nd (though people had him 1st, 3rd, and 4th), and the pick of 78% to win, Josh Prenot, was 3rd (3% got that right).

The top places in the women’s 200 back were pretty inaccurate due to favorite Kathleen Baker entering with a yards time and therefore being listed 70th on the psych sheet. Only 9% correctly picked her 1st. Lower down, only 1 person picked Bridgette Alexander 4th (nice job kingofthepool).

In the women’s 50 fly, 98% picked the winner Kelsi Worrell, but no one got 4th place finisher Alyssa Marsh correct (2 people did have her 3rd). The men’s 50 fly saw Cullen Jones get 2nd (picked by 6 people) and the favorite of 52% of entries, Tom Shields, not compete in the final.

Only 6 predicted Cullen Jones for 2nd

I had Michael Andrew 4th in the 50 fly.

I think he’s got a real shot tomorrow in the 50 breast. Sprinting is his forte, the shorter the better.

Not having that 1 point allowance for picking each swimmer in the top 4 – 6 but out of order pulled the net out from under my selection trapeze.
