How everyone did
The biggest gold-medal upset was in the 50 back, where only 2% of contestants picked Etiene Medeiros to win. That event as a whole was rough on our players, with only 2% picking fourth place correctly and 14% each picking silver and bronze right.
A couple top-4 finishers came completely out of left field. Not a single person picked France’s Mehdy Metella to take 3rd in the men’s 100 free, and no player selected Korea’s An Sehyeon for any place within the top 4 of the 200 fly. She got 4th place for a grand total of zero points to Pick ‘Em players.
Easily the most overwhelming favorite was the American 4×200 free relay team, which got 99% of picks to win. The only players not getting the 7 points for that pick are 7 contestants who left the slot blank and two lonely homers who selected Canada and Australia, respectively.
81% also had Mireia Belmonte winning the women’s 200 fly.
Wonder how many people predicted the USA’s 1-2 sweep in the 100 free
I had Adrian-Dressel…
Me too. Zero point.
Adrian-Dressel as well…
Had Dressel first and Adrian second. I picked Dressel to win because he’s a Big Meet swimmer. He dug deep the last 15 meters.
…holy crap. Can we stop now?
The big day is Day 8, when there are 8 finals. Most days there are only 5 finals.
Hm, yup that’ll be the day I tumble into the bottom quarter.
