Junker23 continues to lead our Pick ‘Em contest, but a huge day from Captain Ahab has the leading margin at just 3 points with two days left to swim.
Captain Ahab scored 31 on day 6, a top-10 score for the day and enough to vault to 2nd place. Today’s top scorer was john26, who earned 42 points, followed closesly by sara.

HOW EVERYONE DID
It was a big day for upsets, as three of five gold medalists were correctly predicted by less than 10% of contestants. Here’s a quick look:
|Event||Winner||% Correctly Predicted|
|Men’s 200 breast||Anton Chupkov||3%|
|Men’s 4×200 free relay||Great Britain||5%|
|Women’s 100 free||Simone Manuel||7%|
|Men’s 200 back||Evgeny Rylov||16%|
|Women’s 200 breast||Yulia Efimova||92%|
Just 10 players correctly picked junior world record-holder Anton Chupkov to triumph over senior world record-holder Ippei Watanabe in the men’s 200 breast. Only 15 saw Great Britain defending its 2015 world title in the 4×200 free relay, and only 22 players picked Simone Manuel to successfully defend her 2016 Olympic title in the women’s 100 free.
