SCORING SYSTEM

Correctly picking a swimmer to place:

Non Relay Events

  • 1st – 11 points
  • 2nd – 9 points
  • 3rd – 7 points
  • 4th – 6 points
  • 5th – 5 points

Free Relay Events (100 and 200 freestyles)

  • 1st – 11 points
  • 2nd – 9 points
  • 3rd – 7 points
  • 4th – 6 point
  • 5th – 5 points
  • 6th – 5 points
  • 7th – 5 points
  • 8th – 5 points

Correctly picking a swimmer to place in the top 5 or 8, depending on the event, but putting them in the wrong spot, will earn you 1 point.

Picks will close at 9AM Central Time on Sunday, June 13, and at that time, we will post everyone’s picks for them to see.

You CAN go in and edit your responses up until 9 AM on Sunday. 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.

It’s not just him. The form is practically unusable. Entirely unresponsive for 15+ seconds after attempting to input any information or after making any selection.
