SwimSwam is running two Pick ‘Em contests; this one is presented by TYR and rewards you for picking the swimmers who place first through fourth (and through sixth for the 100/200 frees) in each event. The rules for the Pick ‘Em contest are outlined here.
Correctly picking a swimmer to place:
- 1st – 7 points
- 2nd – 5 points
- 3rd – 4 points
- 4th – 3 points
- 5th place – 1 point (100/200 frees only)
- 6th place – 1 point (100/200 frees only)
For this contest, if you correctly pick 1st AND 2nd place (aka the two Olympians in the event), in the right order, you will receive 1 bonus point.
The tie-breaker for prizes, if necessary, will be the most correctly-picked winners, then 2nd-place finishers, then 3rd-place finishers, etc. in the relevant time period.
This year we’ll be tracking the scoring every night on a big board at SwimSwam’s official Omaha HQ – Local Beer, Patio, and Kitchen.
