    A bit surprised by the men's LJ

    I assume this does not include ancillary marks (a separate list on Pela's site), and if it had the name Lewis would come up most.

      I am not at all surprised that Bubka has the most overall for men.

        Look again. Alekna has 128, Bubka 113.

          Fascinating. Kayako Fukushi has to be the least well known. I would never have guessed.

            I looked it up. You are correct in assuming that it does not include ancillary marks. On the other hand, even if ancillary marks are included, Lewis does NOT leap ahead of Myricks.

            There are 1,023 performances of 8.26 (27-1¼) or better. Lewis has 50, and Myricks has 91 (as listed in the above table).

            If ancillary marks are included, there are 1,006 performances of 8.31 (27-3¼) or better. Lewis has 104, but Myricks has 127.

            Alternatively, if both indoor and ancillary marks are included, there are 1,039 performances of 8.32 (27-3¾) or better. Lewis has 131, but Myricks has 132.

              Yes, I think I was forgetting that in a lot of years Lewis had a pretty limited competition schedule for the long jump. So it makes sense that Myricks has more jumps over 27 feet.

              Now if you just look at jumps of 8.50 (27-10¾) or more, excluding ancillaries, there are a total of 144, and Lewis has 32, followed by Pedroso at 26, then Myricks at 17. [Powell, at 16 is the only other with more than 10].

                Whoops. I looked a little too quickly.

                  I guess she just ran the distance most often among world-class women. Tiru Dibaba has been around and winning medals forever, and yet she hasn't even come close to 22 races over 10000.

                    Why are HT, multis and walks missing from the list?

                      Imagine what kind of numbers Iolanda Balas would have had in the women's HJ in say, 1965.

                        Not surprising that the marathon has the lowest count among both men and women. I would not have guessed that Kipchoge leads the 5k.

                        I wonder who leads the HT and Dec/Hep.

                          Dec: 1001 at 8198 or better.
                          36: Roman Sebrle
                          26: Erki Nool
                          26: Tomás Dvorák
                          23: Christian Plaziat

                          Hep: 1002 at 6271 or better
                          32: Sabine Braun
                          24: Jackie Joyner-Kersee
                          24: Liliana Nastase
                          23: Anke Behmer
                          23: Urszula Wlodarczyk

                          Only included those with more than 20.

                            I'm pretty sure in the heptathlon it will be Sabine Braun, who had the longest career at the top of all women. A quick scan by name shows she has 44 entries in the list, and none of the obvious other names even get in the 30's.

                            On the men's side, its probably Sebrle, with 48.

                            Wlodarcyzk have over 100 in the wHT

                              ha mcgato has just proven my point! I just looked at the full list rather than the 1000th performance, but the same resulting athlete
