The men’s 400 free was won by favored Mykhaylo Romanchuk (55%), but there were surprises behind him.  Henrik Christiansen (4%) was 2nd, Hennig Meuhleitner (3%) was 3rd and Felix Auboeck (6%) was 4th.

The upsets continued in the women’s 400 free relay. No place was correctly picked by more than 16% of entries with France (6%) winning followed by the Netherlands (12%), Denmark (16%), and  Great Britain (14%).

The men’s relay was a bit more to expectations. It was won by Russia (56%). Italy were 2nd (27%) followed by Poland (2%), and Hungary (11%)

Tough day for me. I did only slightly better than most of the people who didn’t complete the form.
