SCORING SYSTEM

Correctly picking a swimmer to place:

  • 1st – 7 points
  • 2nd – 5 points
  • 3rd – 4 points
  • 4th – 3 points

Correctly picking a swimmer to place in the top 4, but putting them in the wrong spot, will earn you 1 point.

Picks will close at 6pm Eastern Time on Saturday, July 20th, and at that time, we will post everyone’s picks for them to see.

You CAN go in and edit your responses up until 6 PM on Saturday. You can also use this “edit responses” ability to go in and print or save your answers.

The tie-breaker for prizes, if necessary, will be the most correctly-picked winners in the relevant time period, then 2nd-place finishers, then 3rd-place finishers, etc. in the relevant time period.

Let’s go! I was beginning to think that there wouldn’t be one for world champs. Good luck to everybody!

Dean v Ledecky in distance, who would win

Reply to  College swimmer

whoa….tough one. Dean wins the 400, but 800 is question mark. The 1500 goes to Ledecky.

Dean’s time in the 400 is a 4:07.45. Ledecky should win the 800 as long as she puts up a good swim.

Is there something similar for people from Europe?

Admin
Reply to  Mclovin96

Mclovin96 – people from Europe can play for bragging rights, they just can’t win prizes. It’s too hard to win prizes in the European Union, and us giving prizes to people in the EU opens up a whole can of worms with taxes and contest rules and other issues that we just don’t want to deal with.

So I have the EU to blame for the Speedo t-shirt and kick board I’ll never receive…

1) A kickboard;
2) Mel being forced to record a GMM for one or more of: men’s 200 fly, women’s 100 fly, women’s 400 IM, men’s 100 breast.
