jcm’s ’09 World Championships’ Contest

TO PLAY:

worlds_2009_logoPost your predictions for the top 4 medal placements (including the fourth place “pewter” medal), in any or all 4 figure skating divisions in the “Comments” for this posting. If username does not link to your email address, be sure to include your email address as well, so I can contact you should you win (since I moderate all comments, I’ll extract your email address before it’s posted, so it won’t be made public). All participants may post updated votes up until March 20th (Extension: til midnight, March 21st), especially to eliminate any withdrawn skaters, however, this may effect the contest results in the event of a tie (see below.) I will announce withdrawals on the site in the “Comments” for this post, if they emerge.

SCORING:

  • 10 points for correct top 3 placements (gold, silver, & bronze) for 1 division
  • 5 points for 1 correct medal placement (ie: “Jane Doe – silver medal”)
  • 2 points for 1 correct medalist in any top 3 placement (ie: you post “Jane Doe – silver medal”, but Jane wins bronze)
  • 1 point for 1 correct fourth place “pewter” medalist

PRIZES:

amazon_logo_tallThe winner for each division will be awarded a $20 online Amazon.com gift certificate, the week following Worlds. (A total of $80.00 prizes are at stake!)

The small print:

If there are any withdrawals in any division that effect a prediction, your 4th place (“pewter”) vote will automatically move up into bronze position. (This is why the 4th place vote is essential.) If there are 2 withdrawals in any division that also effect your predictions, I will only count the top 2 votes for that division. If there are no withdrawals in a division, the fourth place medalist vote will be used as a tie-breaker, and to add 1 point, if correct (see above.) The earlier post (including any updates) breaks any tie, if all 4 placements are the same in 2 or more submissions.

You can review the top tier contestants in all 4 divisions here:

(This contest is not bullet-proof, but since it’s just for fun, hopefully I’ve accounted for all possible scenarios, to allow for ideal fairness.)
