  • Paired Binomial World Records

    As in, when was the last time a WR was the same pair of numbers repeated? At dinner last night somebody said t hey thought they could remember a 70.70 discus.

    (double-digit numbers; 7-7 doesn't count!) (side question: who did the first 7-7?)

      Man, that was Seppo! Can't believe it was almost 20 years ago.

        One fact is certain: there won't be an 18"18 in the 200m, so Mr. Bolt's 19"19 is safe here. The 100M went to Mr. Charles Greene and his 10"10.

          The first flopper who ever set a WR. That tall, skinny kid who went to Long Beach State for a while.

              A 1:41.41 would be nice.

              Or a 3:33.33 (3:30.30)

              an 8:08.08 steeple

              Didn't Kunze run a 13:13.13 indoor 5K?

              13.13 hurdles are common. 48.48.

              I want an 8888 Dec! or a double devilish 6666 Hep. :twisted:

                  How about the only palindrome WR?

                        Well done. Now how about the WR with rotational symmetry?

                            The above-mentioned 96.96 by Seppo R├Ąty. Not strictly speaking, since when rotated 180 deg., the dot moves from bottom to top.

                              Forget the dots. But, there is at least one other....
