Predict your Olympic medalists here! For each event, you will predict gold, silver, and bronze medalists as well as an alternate medalist.
Scoring guide: A correct prediction will result in 5 points. An incorrect medal color but a medalist nonetheless will result in 3 points. An alternate prediction winning a medal of any color will result in 2.5 points. So if I predict for WAG TF 1) USA 2) CHN 3) RUS alt: JPN, and the result is 1) USA 2) RUS 3) JPN, I will receive a total of 10.5 points. 5 points won for correctly predicting the USA’s placement, 3 points won for correctly predicting RUS to win a medal, and 2.5 points won for the alternate JPN winning a medal.
You do not need to fill out both WAG and MAG. I will keep and update a Google sheet for all to see. I will also calculate a cumulative WAG + MAG total.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You have until Sunday, July 25, 6 PM EDT to modify your predictions (12 hours before MAG TF begins). Obviously you can update your predictions after TQ—I probably won’t make mine until then.
OTHER NOTE: You are restricted to one submission per Google account and you CAN edit after submitting.
THIRD NOTE: If you try to be sneaky and list two alternates for any given event, I will nullify both and count neither. One individual/team for each!
Feel free to post your predictions below as comments too, if you’d like.
