Here's an idea:

We can turn this into a better game where we score points for each "correct" prediction. If your chosen competitors finishes 1st 2nd or 3rd, then you score 3, 2, or 1 points respectively. After all the results are up, we tally up our points to give a score out of 51 (17 events * 3 points). The person with the most points wins.

The prize: ???

Swim Swam does something similar for the NCAA contest. The points system is pretty simple and the way they have the website layout is really nice and it auto scored every person's entries.

I have no idea how hard this would be to copy for the worlds contest but that would be super cool.

Also. Time to make 3x3 finals. 9.50.

9.45 would be #18 on the psych sheet as of now. I think it's highly unlikely that there are so many PB avgs in the semifinals and/or so few of the Top16 choke. However, so many people between 9.5 and 10 :O

Mega top 3:
1. Odder
2. Simon
3. Me

Third is a longshot. Sorry Chris. :p
Also, my reasoning on putting Simon second is that Odder seems a lot more consistent.
This may change at some point, there's still more than a month left. Will add other predictions later.

Update:
Mega podium:
Simon
Me
Odder

I'm getting too confident here.

Others:
3x3: Feliks, Mats, Rowe (Feliks WR single, sub-5.3)
4x4: Sebastian, Weixing Zhang, Kevin Costello
5x5: Hays, Feliks, Breandan
6x6: Hays, Feliks, John Brekkon :p
7x7: Cohen, Hays, Feliks
2x2: Chris, Cameron, Feliks
Pyra: Drew, Odder, Felix (sub-1.1 lol WR)
Sqwun: Dunno
FMC: Bob Burton (with Niklas LL, 25 moves)
3BLD: Marcell, Noah, Zane (I expect a WR, dunno from who though)
4&5BLD: Marcell (5BLD WR by at least 20 seconds)
OH: Michal, Justin, Feliks
Feet: Louis, Henrik, Tim Sun
Clock: Pierre, Evan, D.Sheppz
MBLD: Marcell, Zane, Noah

How about
Psych sheet position
x 3 if they win,
x 2 if they come second
x 1 if they come third

That's pretty great. So you just choose one person per event then.

The only loophole is that I could for example choose myself for 5BLD since I don't have an official result yet, so I'm last on the psych sheet.
