Contest rules can be found here.

The first event of the night, the women’s 800 free, was won by Simona Quadarella, correctly picked by 69% of entries. Pick’em contestants did less well in the minor places. Only 4% got Anja Kesely in 2nd correct. Only 1 person out of over 200 correctly picked Anna Egorova 3rd (well done Silvia), and 3% had Sarah Koehler 4th.

The men’s 100 breast was a no doubter and everyone picked Adam Peaty to win (100%). Behind him was tougher, only 2 people got James Wilby (1%) right in 2nd. A reasonable 22% got Anton Chupkov in 3rd and 5% had Kirill Prigoda in 4th.

The women’s 100 fly was perhaps the easiest event of the meet to pick so far. 100% got Sarah Sjostrom in 1st, 45% had Svetlana Chimrova 2nd, 25% got Elena Di Liddo 3rd, and a solid 21% had Illaria Bianchi 4th.

The men’s 50 back saw the first winner of the day correctly picked by less than 50% of entries. Kliment Kolesnikov was picked by 45% to win. Favored Vladimir Morozov (2%) was 4th. Between them were Robert-Andrei Glinta (4%) and Shane Ryan (11%).

People were less confident in 50 free winner Sarah Sjostrom (78%) than in the 100 fly. Sjostrom touched out Pernille Blume (51%) by only .01. Ranomi Kromowidjojo (67%) was 3rd and Mariia Kameneva (24%) was 4th to round out the top 4.

The mixed 800 free relay saw Germany (1%) beat out favored Russia (27%) and Great Britain (12%). Hungary (18%) were 4th.

Nsgrr

Hi, in yesterday’s pick ‘em day 1 post it said that my day 1 score was 43, but here it says 36 (I’m Nsgrr). Which one’s right? Just making sure I’m not missing out on that top spot due to a typo 🙂

Emanuele

Wow, 66 points. Big score today
