I would agree on all picks, except one

Men 4×100 medley..While Thoman will be around 1 second faster than the Brazilian Back, the Brazilian breast will be faster on the same amount… so it is a tie at that point.
100 fly Giles Smith is around 0,2 faster than Pereira and Mendes. so a little advantage to US, but can´t see Jones and Townsend being able to keep Santana at bay. Unless Jones put something amazing, Santana will probably outsplit him a full second.

US women’s medley relay can win.
Depends a lot on the backstroke leg. Needs to be with Bouchard or at least close to her.
Coughlin or Smoliga
Schmitt or Coughlin
