The Official SwimSwam Pick ‘Em Contest for the 2021 U.S. Swimming Olympic Trials Wave II is live, courtesy of Speedo USA!

Beware! We know that certain swimmers are entered in more events than they’ll swim at Trials. Choose carefully!

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.
