Contest rules can be found here.

The first event of the evening session, the women’s 200 fly, saw co favorites Alys Thomas and Franziska Hentke finish 3rd and 4th. 28% of entries picked Thomas 3rd, but only one person had Hentke 4th (well done PrettyCrapReally, better than advertised this time). Because the favorites were out of the top 2, few people got the actual top two correct. No one correctly picked Boglarka Kapas to win and only 2 people picked Svetlana Chimtova in 2nd.

The men’s 100 back went according to expectations. The co-favorites finished in the top two spots with Kliment Kolesnikov (51%) besting countryman Evgeni Rylov (46%). Apostolos Christou (7%) was a mild surprise in 3rd ahead of Robert-Andrei Glinta (26%).

With the exception of third, the women’s 200 free was basically chalk. Charlotte Bonnet (81%) was 1st, Frederike Heemskerk (65%) was 2nd, and Elanor Faulkner (29%) was 4th. The big surprise was Anastasia Guzhenkova (0%) in 3rd who wasn’t picked by anyone anywhere in the top 4.

The men’s 200 breast saw another favorite deliver when Anton Chupkov (86%) beat James Wilby (26%). Luca Pizzini (6%) and Ross Murdoch (10%) were 3rd and 4th.

The men’s 200 IM saw Jeremy Desplanches (5%) beat out favored Philip Heintz (19%). Other popular 1st place pick Max Litchfield (24%) was 3rd and Hugo Gonzalez (7%) was 4th.

The night closed with the mixed medley relay where Great Britain (50%) trounced Russia (31%), Italy (27%) and the Netherlands (13%).

“No one correctly picked Boglarka Kapas to win”
Can you elaborate on that, because I did pick her as the winner, and there are like 3 more people who did as well.
