    Pierre Vineron (SP?)of France at the Grand Prix finals in Rome held the World Pole vault record (19'4+)for about five minutes when Bubka took it back (19'5+) in 1985.

    I believe John Pennel lost his pole vault record and got it back four different times over a six year period.

    The Swedish miling duo of Gunder Hägg and Arne Andersson did some great swapping in the early/mid-'40s.

    1500
    Hägg 3:47.6
    Hägg 45.8
    Andersson 3:45.0
    Hägg 3:43.0

    Mile
    Hägg 4:06.2
    Anderson 4:06.2
    Hägg 4:04.6
    Anbdersson 4:02.6
    Hägg 4:01.4 (which lasted until Bannister)

    More recently, Coe and Ovett went back and forth in both events, although Coe never reclaimed the 1500 record once he lost it.

    Give me my record back!

    High jump progression thread got me thinking: Can anyone remember some battles between 2(or 3) athletes, where one sets the WR, loses it to someone and then gets it back...and so on...There was no "re-claiming" in the HJ after 7 feet. I'm young but I can't recall many. I think Carl Lewis did get the 100 WR back after losing it. Any other great battles over WR's??? Curious...
