When Hungary’s Boglarka Kapas (above) won the women’s 200 fly on Wednesday, she upset a whole lot of pick’em entries. Only 4 entries had that pick right.

Winners include: Daiya Seto, 200 IM; Olivia Smoliga, 50 back; Caeleb Dressel, 100 free; Boglarka Kapas, 200 fly; and Australia, women’s 4 x 200 free relay.
