    What are the sports record most likely unbreakable ,any sports ,teams or single ?

    Hello all

    The most likely unbreakable records .

    For many years many thought that Babe Ruth 60 homer in a season would never be match until Roger Maris hammered 61,and so fourth

    In hockey Bobby 102 assist season seemed a high standard until Gretzky exceeded by far .

    The Rockets 50 goals in 50 games beaten by Gretzky

    The Rockets 8 point game ,5 goals ,3 assists beaten by Sittler's 10 points ,6 goals 4 assists .

    In track and field in was long thought that no humans would ever break the below 10 second's for the 100 meters .

    Pole jumping over 6 meters by Ukrainian(USSR) star Sergei Bubka ?

    Sports records fascinates the people some are incredible prowess

    What are the records most likely unbreakable ?


    Cheers

    Maybe the number of threads you opened in 5months, clearly unbreakable IMO...

    Btw, the french Pole jumper Lavillenie recently broke Bubka record. Probably the most incredible performance of the year !

    Hello Booker,

    Before I saw the next post I would have said Bubka's record was one of the most breakable. Many misses in the pole vault are not about being unable to reach the height, they are about failing to concentrate on getting arms, legs, butt out of the way to clear the bar.

    One-shot records like pole vaults, 100 meter dash, javelin throw always run the risk that someone with the talent will have one really great moment, and that is all it takes.

    I think excellence over time is the hardest to achieve. I would then go with:

    William's .406 BA

    Dimaggio's 56 straight games with a hit.

    The Celtics 8 straight Championships.

    Gretzky's assist and points total leadership streak.

    Ruth's home run total (in almost 800 fewer Games than Aaron)

    Then there's the infamous flip side:

    The Leafs 47 straight without reaching a finals series.

    Joe.t's PREDICTION FAILURE STREAK...we have a Winner.

    UNBEATABLE!!!

    The Yankees have won 27 World Series Championships, a record that will never be broken in our lifetime.

    Also the Red Sox went from worst to first and now back to worst, an embarassing record that most likely will never be duplicated therefor you can say that it will never be broken.

    My dad always said that the 56 game hitting streak of Joe DiMaggio would never be broken.

    Ty Cobb's career batting Average of .366 is safe.

    Renaud Lavillenie breaks indoor pole vault world record of Sergei Bubka

    By ASSOCIATED PRESS
    Pole vaulter Renaud Lavillenie of France broke one of track and field's oldest records when he cleared 6.16 meters (20 feet 2 1/2 inches) to beat Sergei Bubka's 21-year-old indoor record with Bubka cheering from the stands in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Saturday.

    Lavillenie cleared the bar comfortably in Bubka's home city, almost to the day the pole vault great achieved 6.15 (20-2) on Feb 21, 1993.


    Lavillenie, the reigning Olympic champion, looked wild-eyed and pumped his arms in delight as he realized he'd set a record, and was congratulated by Bubka, who had stood to applaud.

    “I think it's going to take me some time to come back to earth because it's incredible,” Lavillenie said on French news channel BFM TV. “This is a world record that is so mythical, and to clear it on the first jump, without touching (the bar) — there's nothing to say. It's just a moment to savor.”

    In fact, he cleared it so easily that he could well have beaten the record by even more.

    Bubka, the Olympic champion in 1988, set multiple indoor and outdoor world records including the top seven indoor marks, and he was quick to praise his successor.

    “I think this is a great day, a fantastic performance, I am very happy that Renaud did this record in my home city where I did 6.15,” the 50-year-old Bubka said on BFM TV. “I'm very happy and proud for him, because he's a great athlete and a fantastic role model."

    Bubka still holds the outdoor record at 6.14 meters, set in 1994.

    Bob beamon longest standing olympic record

    Hello all

    What about Bob Beamon's prowess?

    The longest standing modern Olympic athletics record is Bob Beamon's achievement in the men's long jump at the 1968 Summer Olympics.[6] The jump, at 8.90 m (29 ft 2 in), also broke the existing world record by 55 cm (22 in), and stood as the world record for 23 years until Beamon's compatriot, Mike Powell, jumped farther in the 1991 World Championships in Athletics in Tokyo.[7] During the 2012 Games, six men's and five women's records were broken.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...s_in_athletics,

    After winning the gold medal in Mexico City, he never again jumped over 8.22 m (26 ft. 11 3/4 in.).

    Beamon's jump was the only time the world record has been set in Men's Olympic Long Jump competition, though Robert LeGendre did set the record as part of the pentathlon competition in 1924 and women have done it three times (1956, 1964 and 1968).

    Beamon's world-record jump was named by Sports Illustrated magazine as one of the five greatest sports moments of the 20th century. His world record was finally broken in 1991 when Mike Powell jumped 8.95 m (29 ft. 4 3/8 in.) at the World Championships in Tokyo, but Beamon's jump is still the Olympic record and 46 years later remains the second longest wind legal jump in history.

    Chicago Cubs 116-36 .763 record in 1906 will be very hard to beat.

    Cy Young's 511 career wins will be almost impossible to beat.

    Will White's single season 680 innings pitched and 75 complete games pitched in 1879 will never be broken.

    DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak has stood since 1941 and the closest anyone got was Pete Rose's 44 game streak in 1978 which was an amazing streak in and of itself. Due to the advent of modern bullpens and hard throwers coming on in the late innings, the likelihood of this streak ever being broken is very small. DiMaggio was a very unusual hitter in that he was very hard to strike out even though he had substantial power. To be able to hit the ball hard and make contact consistently, and not walk a lot so that you have more ABs in which to get possible hits, is essential to having such a streak. Very few hitters have all of these qualities in one package. What is interesting is that DiMaggio also had a 56 game hitting streak in the minors, so he did it twice!!!!

    Ted Williams' .406 will also be hard to break, although Tony Gwynn hit .394 in 1994 and George Brett hit .390 in 1980. These flirtations with Williams' record were a bit more interesting than any attempts on the DiMaggio record - even Rose was still 12 games off.

    Lastly, this past April the UConn men's basketball team made 101 of 115 free throws - 87.8% - in winning the NCAA championship. It is not only an NCAA tournament record for a champion, it is a record for any team that played 3 or more games in any NCAA tournament. Usually the NCAA regular season team leader in FT% is around 80% but in tournament games where the pressure is sky high, this record is unbelievable. I do not think it will ever be broken, by any team taking more than 100 FTs. Incidentally the UConn team shot about 77% on FTs for the season which was very good and put them in the top 6 or so nationally, but to jack that number up to 88% in very high pressure games, where the weakest FT shooters are being fouled deliberately at the end of games, is simply sick. In the championship game the end came very quickly because Kentucky coach Calipari told his players not to foul UConn players "because they are not missing." He was not even really second guessed for this very unusual strategy in a 5-6 point game. UConn was 10-10 on FTs in the championship game to that point. I have never seen that strategy of not fouling used before in a high stakes game of any kind let alone a championship game.

    Hello all
    Dimaggio's 56 games hitting is almost unconceivable and Rose streak had the pleasure to follow it just as Tony Gwynn and George Brett .
    Those are truly exciting moments in sports extravaganza !
    But original records stayed safe !

    cheers
