The contest is very simple and helps you get more knowledgeable about the Olympics. You pick the top 3 in the all the running events from our guide of the top entrants. You get points for how many picks you get correctly. We score your picks and determine a winner. You don’t need a lot of knowledge of track and field to play and we encourage you to invite your friends to play in a group.

It’s easy to do. Tens of thousands of you have played over the years.

We give you a list of the top entrants with a picking guide, so everyone has a chance. A 13-year-old won our Marathon Trials contest.

(The first event in the contest closes at 8:00pm eastern on Thursday July 29, so get your picks in by then).

We have a feature that allows you to change your picks up until about 10 minutes before a particular event is scheduled to start.

The first events in the contest close at 7:00pm eastern on Friday June 18  so get your picks in by then.

Also, you don’t have to fill in all of your picks at once.

The scoring is as follows:

  • Each person that you correctly pick to finish in the top 3 = 1 point.
    It doesn’t matter if you actually get the pick exactly right. If you pick someone for 1st and they finish 3rd you still get the point. Vice versa is true as well. If you pick them to get third and they get third, it’s still only one point.
  • Each event winner picked correctly = 3 more points (you pick someone for first and they get first, that’s 4 total points).
  • Each event picked perfectly – All three picks: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the right order = 2 more points (here the order is key).

Do you understand the rules fully? The following example should explain any questions you have. If you pick 1st, 2nd, and 3rd correctly in any event in the proper order, it is 3 points (1 point for each person in the top 3) + 3 points (for getting the winner correct) + 2 points (bonus for perfect pick of top 3 in order) = 8 points.

The more points, the better.

Play in a Group vs. Your Friends

In our contest, you can create your own group and play against your friends.


Oh yeah, only one entry per person. No computerized/mechanical entries. We’re sure we should have a bunch of legal stuff here. How about this: your picks and your login name are not private and may be displayed on our website. And we’re not responsible if the free contest gets cancelled for any reason including if our database crashes. If the contest is cancelled, the prizes will not be awarded. We’ll do our best to keep everything running smoothly. The top 3 in any event are final when we determine them at the end of the meet and this may not be the ultimate final top 3 (mainly due to drug busts in the future). Additionally, this contest is obviously void where prohibited by law – which states and countries that is, we don’t know. Also you need to be of the right minimum age, which we’ll say is 15 to be safe. No purchase necessary. And yes, we can win our own contest. If we beat you, you’ll hear about it for sure. The $200,019 prize is the sole responsibility of

This contest is in no way affiliated with the IOC.

*And we’ll try to keep events open until 10 minutes before each event, but we’re not guaranteeing anything.

Please note: For tie-breaking purposes, we’ll first look at the number of 1st places correctly chosen. If there’s still a tie, we’ll look at the number of 2nd places correctly chosen, and then if need be, the number of 3rd places correctly chosen. If there still is a tie, we’ll conduct a random drawing.
