    Not sure if this is in the right section, but

    Given the statistician expertise on this board, I was wondering if anyone has, or can, publish the list of the 1,000th all time best performer for all events.

    Here's a quick way , without designing an algorithm for some machine to chew on, to spot number of performances by performer in those lists. Using Chrome, type Ctrl-f and at top right corner of screen in the rectangular box, enter the name, then it appears highlighted and easy to spot. I counted 56 entries for Noah Ngeny in the 8601 1500 meter times listed.

    I wonder if Jesse Owens is the only pre WWII performer who is still in the top 1000?

    Interesting. But we're still looking at 977 performances , not competitors. At least, not 977 distinct competitors - if I understand your example correctly.
