Hello everyone! I've prepared a fantasy league-esque game for the upcoming US National Championships. All you have to do to enter is to fill out the form at the bottom of the page - and no, you don't have to be going to US Nationals to take part!

The rules are simple - try to predict the podiums of Nats and fill in the competitors' names (FULL names, please) into the spaces. For every name you put in the correct position, you earn one point. Obviously, the person with the most points will win the competition! Note that you don't have to get the entire podiums to win points; if some of your predictions are correct, points will rack up under your name.

Keep in mind that you are not allowed to edit your predictions after you've submitted. Completed forms are due by Wednesday, July 30, at 11:59 PM EDT. Leaving blanks on the form IS allowed, but not encouraged (there's no advantage to leaving a blank over guessing randomly).

If you're unsure, refer to the US Nationals Psych Sheet as a guide.

Once tabulated, the final results (along with some statistics) will be announced in this thread. This will happen no more than two days after the end of US Nationals.

RESULTS!

If you have any questions or comments, let me know! I look forward to seeing how this turns out! Good luck, have fun, and choose wisely!

Just fyi, the judges round will happen before the closing of this fantasy on Thursday. Most of the events will be just first rounds, but if a judge were to set incredible times in feet, which only has a final round, that would give someone an advantage to wait until Thursday night to fill out their prediction.

Agh, I forgot! Thanks for the heads up, I've changed the due date to Wednesday to avoid complications.

Brest: Hey Feliks solve this
Feliks: Ok!
Brest then records a video of the solve, and uses the 19 move solution Feliks presented in that solve.
The WDC then sees that Brest used a video camera.
Brest is disqualified

Congrats to 'eido' for guessing the most podium positions correctly and winning the competition! :D

Thank you all for participating!

I will be posting here again in a few days with some more fun statistics.

You can view everyone's guesses (as well as which ones were correct) here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1V4Mr-zWGvGV4u3Kc37M0ia0Ys-qMuT8iQBl9EbiN8nw/edit#gid=2074094876 There's bound to be a mistake in there somewhere, so if you think anything's wrong, please let me know.
