    Sergey Litvinov was 1st or 2nd in seven consecutive hammer WRs. 2nd in the last 3.

    @Conor Dary: Good one, but still Litvinov is not the answer. Litvinov even was in eight consecutive WRs in the first 3.

    Another hint: The five records were set by two athletes. Both of them have set also other world records in this event and also in other events.

    That's correct!

    She was 2nd in Montreal and then 4 times behind Koch, including at the Europeans!

    Congratulations LopenUupunut!

    That was a nice piece of trivia!

    I would never have got it without the hints, especially the North America hint. Good hints that helped without completely giving it away.

    Excellent question....btw Matti Järvinen was involved in 12 consecutive world javelin records in the early 1930s. All separate meets.

    Kipchoge's 2:00:25 and this reminds me of a trivia question we had years ago here...who was the first to break an hour for the half marathon?

    I never would have guessed Lathan, even though I saw two of those five WR races in person.
