Win Prizes! Enter to Win the 2023 World Aquatics Championships Pick ‘Em Contest

The 2023 World Aquatics Championships are underway in Fukuoka, Japan, and the swimming portion is set to kick off on Sunday, June 23. Think you’ve got the best eye for talent? Have a hunch about who is on form and who isn’t? Will the American men win a gold medal?

Put your predictatory prowess to the test with the SwimSwam Pick ‘Em Contest, presented by Speedo USA.

The prizes for this contest will be provided by Speedo USA.


Need help making picks? Check out the SwimSwam official preview index here.


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 7:00 PM, US Eastern Time on Saturdayday, July 22, and at that time, we will post everyone’s picks for them to see.

You CAN go in and edit your responses up until 7:00 PM on Friday. 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.


Anybody is eligible to play, but only certain people are eligible for prizes. For starters, only one entry per person is allowed. If we discover that you have made multiple entries, we may disqualify all of your entries.

To win prizes, entrant must:

  • Be 18 or older

Hi there. Sorry to inform you but an entrant that is named after my username will be ineligible for prizes. Didn’t read the criteria as I only just found it.
