After day 1 of finals james7187 leads the pick’em contest and is therefore the day 1 winner. He held a comfortable 7 point margin over marklewis and Harrison Andrews who tied for 2nd with 62. With only 4 finals down, almost no one is out of the running yet to win the whole contest, but a solid day 1 always helps. The overall top 10 are in the table below. 49 people have 50 or more points.
How everyone did
There were a few surprises on day 1. No body picked Hungary 3rd in the men’s 400 free relay. Only 9% picked Brazil 2nd in the men’s 400 free relay, and 10% picked Ariane Titmus 4th in the 400 free.
The favorites to win came through. The winner of every event was picked by at least 70% of entries. Katie Ledecky was picked by 100% of entries in the 400 free. The other individual winner, Sun Yang, was picked by 70% of entries.
The only non 1st place picks gotten correct by more than 50% of entries were Leah Smith in the 400 free (94%) and Australia in the women’s 400 free relay (69%).
