How everyone did

The biggest upset of the day was Federica Pellegrini’s win in the 200 free over favored Katie Ledecky. 3 people correctly picked this upset (well done Fins22, janskimarkus, and Junker23).

The next strongest favorite did pull through. Adam Peaty won the 50 breast as predicted by 98% of entries. People were unsure what to do with the lower places in that event. Kevin Cordes, present in the top 4 of 87% of entries, was 5th. only 16% got Joao Gomes in 2nd.

The men’s 200 fly was one of the most split events of the meet among entrants. 25% correctly had Chad Le Clos winning and 21% had Laszlo Cseh in 2nd.

800 favorite Gabriele Detti (59%) pulled through, but no one picked Wojciech Wojdak 2nd.

The session was wrapped up by the USA winning the mixed medley relay as predicted by 76% of entries.

There were two ties today. These were scored the same as a tie would be in a swim meet. For example picking either Ledecky or McKeon 2nd or 3rd in the 200 free was worth 4.5 points

So close

I clearly should get bonus points for picking Pelligrini.
