jcm’s ‘10 Olympics’ Podium Predictions Contest

It’s nearly one month til the Opening Ceremony of the Vancouver Winter Olympics! In celebration and anticipation, I invite you to take part in my contest, the second of its kind on jcm, since my 09 Worlds’ Contest. You contribute nothing but figure skating placement predictions, I make no profit, and it’s not linked to any organization or business…it’s just for fun!

TO PLAY

Post your predictions for the top 4 medal placements (including the fourth place “pewter” medal), in any or all 4 figure skating disciplines in the “Comments” for this post. If your username is not linked to your email address, be sure to include your email address as well, or email it to me, so I can contact you should you win. Refer to the early submissions for the basic format, and you may use your initials only, if you wish. Predictions or resubmissions must be posted before midnight, February 12th. I will announce any skater withdrawals in the “Comments” for this post.

SCORING

  • 15 points for correct top 3 placements (gold, silver, & bronze) for 1 discipline (if achieved, the next 3 scoring items are not added)
  • 6 points for 1 correct gold medal placement
  • 5 points for 1 correct silver medal placement
  • 4 points for 1 correct bronze medal placement
  • 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” medal placement
  • 1 bonus point for 4 correct top 4, in any top placement (ie: you post correct top 4, BUT some or all are in wrong placement)

PRIZES

The winner for each discipline will be awarded a $20 online amazon.com gift certificate, the week following the Olympics. (A total of $80.00 in prizes are at stake!)


ATHLETES

You can review the Vancouver Athletes, in all 4 figure skating disciplines here. (Once an official competitor list is published, I’ll provide the link.) Check out the season’s best total scores for men, ladies, pairs, ice dance.

And, keep an eye on the official Olympic Schedule and Results here.

The small print:

If there are any withdrawals before Feb. 12, you may resubmit your predictions, but I discourage you from doing so for unaffected disciplines, as you will risk losing a tie-breaker because of resubmitting later. If a withdrawal in any discipline effects your prediction, your 4th place prediction will be counted as your bronze medal prediction (this is why the 4th place prediction is essential.) If there are 2 withdrawals in any discipline that effect your prediction, the remaining skaters in that discipline will be counted as your top 2 prediction. If there are no withdrawals in a discipline, the fourth place prediction serves as a top 3 tie-breaker. In the case of a top 4 tie, the earlier post prevails (including any resubmissions).

I have revised the scoring, since my ’09 Worlds’ Predictions Contest, to increase fairness, and account for more possible scenarios. Have fun y’all!

    Wow…earlier submission! Congrats on being the first. I’m pleased to see that you’re betting on some interesting twists here (ie: Belbin/Agosto and Savchenko/Szolkowy off the podium, two American men on the podium, and NO Japanese men on the podium).

    Hmmmm…it’s interesting to see that noone’s betting on Sasha Cohen. I wonder if noone trusts that she’ll show at Nationals…or, if they doubt her ability to be viable on this Olympic stage? She’s definitely a wild card.

    I was eagerly anticipating your submission Aaron! Flatt for bronze…I’m all for that, and certainly sounds possible! AND, yes, I think it’s actually easier to throw a coin to predict the mens than base it on any actual real reasoning, as there are SO many possibilities!

    DH, it’s nice to see you’re back again for another round of predictions. Hopefully you can repeat your win (or better) from my World’s contest!

    Hi JCM, yep — I made the cutoff of Friday @midnight. This year I’m so late that I decided I had to include a couple placements that run opposite conventional wisdom…we’ll see. Good luck to everybody.

    How lovely to have the (presumably) final submission be from my Ohio family! I especially love the honorable mentions! Love, P

    Congratulations to Jean-Samuel Gagnon for winning the Pairs’ portion of the contest, with a perfect top four prediction (ie: all four placements were spot-on), one of four, and his was posted first!

    Now, onto the mens!!!

    Congratulations to “MIZ” (yes, MY MOTHER…so proud of her!!!) for winning the Men’s portion of the contest, with a score of 11. She predicted both the gold and silver medalists in the correct placement. Only one other participant bet correctly on 1 & 2 as well.

    The depth of the men’s field contributed to much lower scores across the board (and no perfect top three or top four prediction), as many were betting on Abbott, Chan, Oda, and Joubert.

    Next up…Ice Dance!!!

    Congratulations to “MF” for winning the Ice Dance portion of the contest, with a perfect top four prediction! “CK” tied “MF”, but missed out due to a later submission. It was an unforgettable night indeed. It was so sad to see Belbin & Agosto so close to the podium. I hope they go to one more Worlds!

    Congratulations to “LJ” for winning the Ladies’ portion of the contest by guessing the top three correctly! LJ was the very first voter, and voted on the day the contest was posted.

    “Buscar Bruscar,” “Pat,” and “CK” tied with LJ, but missed out due to later submissions.

    Only “Casey” had any hope in Mirai Nagasu, the SURPRISE fourth place finisher! More of you bet on Rachael Flatt, who also skated VERY well!

    Thanks for participating! This was fun for me, and hopefully for you as well!
