  • Co-World Record Holders

    When was the last time that there were Co-World Record Holders in an individual Track and Field event? I do remember the 4x400 record being tied in 1988, but then that's not an individual event.

    Seb Coe and Wilson Kipketer? 1:41.73 for the 800.

      The High Jump would be an obvious place to look. Sjoberg and Thranhardt co-held it at 2.42 for 7 months in 88.

        Oh good call - they held it together for a month in 97.

            Ignoring the hand-time era of sprints, where ties were the norm, it'll be a loooong time before we ever see the 4-way tie that existed in the women's 200 from August 29, 1986 to September 29, 1988 when we had the unreal happenstance of a pair of 21.71s by Marita Koch and a pair of 21.71s by Heike Drechsler standing atop the list.

            (one should never say never, but since it's Flo's 21.34 now being chased, I'm willing to say we'll NEVER see another 4-way in the women's 200)

                    And maybe a unique one: Igor Ter-Ovanesyan and Ralph Boston shared the record twice, at 27-1/4 (8.31) and 27-3/8 (8.35).

                      And in the men's 200, it would be NEVER plus a day.

                        There were no absolute WRs in those days, so it wouldn't have been considered a tie - Sjoberg was the outdoor record holder, Thranhardt the indoor equivalent.

                          No, there was a brief period back then when the "absolute WR" concept was in play. They did share. The IAAF deleted Thränhrdt as an "outdoor record" in '91.

                            The Imperial measures are missing somethin; clearly 4cm does not translate into 1/8th of an inch. I get

                            8.350 8.310 meters
                            27.395 27.264 feet
                            4.739 3.1647 inch portion

                              By then it had been broken anyway. But if the IAAF recognized absolute records until 1991, there was a period when Javier Sotomayor shared the record with himself (he jumped 2.43 outdoors in 1988 and indoors in 1989).

                              Stefka Kostadinova also shared the WR with Ludmila Andonova at 2.07 - though only for a few days in 1986, after which she improved to 2.08.
