    Drechsler has 38 jumps better than next placed Radtke; 65 if you count ancillary jumps.

      Piotr Małachowski is the Polish no. 1 with, I believe, 36 results ahead of Robert Urbanek (not including ancillary throws).

          Looking at her complete career record at 400m since her debut in 1988 until her last race in 2000, Marie-José PÉREC has 26 of her 34 competitions were faster than the 2nd French ebst ever (51.21). She holds the 34 French best performances (including heats) and she has never been beaten by a French in the 1 lap race.

            JE only has 9 competitions over Phillips 17.81 (there will be more ancillary jumps including WR in 95)

            If we're looking at TJ Ashia Hansen is a better bet as 2nd best UK is over a meter down

            No it's not i forgot about Aldama
            i deserve extra credit

              But before Aldama became eligible to represent GBR, Hansen must have had A LOT of results better than the British no.2.

                Sergei Bubka probably easily has 100+ performances better than the Ukrainian #2, his brother at 5.86m.

                  IIRC, Akii-Bua never approached his WR at the Olympics. The #2 Ugandan is, Peter Rwamuhanda, with a PR of 49.78. Akii-Bua undoubtedly ran faster than that multiple times, but I doubt if he approaches some of the others who've been mentioned on this thread.

                    I believe it's less than 100 unless you count ancillary performances.

                      100's probably every competition for 10 years !!

                        Found the data on alltime-athletics. Bubka had 139 vaults higher than 5.86m.

                        75 times outdoors
                        38 times indoors
                        12 outdoor ancillary
                        12 indoor ancillary
                        1 town square
                        1 jump off

                          Did you pick 5.86 because that is the next Ukrainian vaulter on the list?(also named Bubka for those keeping track).

                            My mistake--I did not look at indoor marks. As others have noted, it's definitely over 100.

                              Yes. He also had a couple of 5.86 marks that tied the #2 Ukrainian performer (Vasiliy Bubka).
