    The intention of this thread is for people to post interesting competition statistics like the one below.

    Esteban Marin has only done one official solve, and the event was 7x7x7!

    And every solve he's done in competition has been a NR. Can anyone else boast this?

    But his 3rd solve was slower than his 2nd...so it wasn't really a record of any sort. I guess technically the first one was never a record either, as it was beaten before the round finished

    WCA rules
    8a5) The competition should have at least 12 competitors.
    This competition had exactly 12 competitors...have we got a situation that needs investigating? Seems odd that 10 people DNFed when that was the only event of the day and there was a 2nd round to go through to.

    Even stranger regarding that comp: http://www.worldcubeassociation.org/results/p.php?i=2010JUFR01<--That person has no last name, and every "solve" they've done in competition was DNF.

    It is common for an Indonesian to have a single word name.

    If we count each solve as being able to be an NR, as long as it beats the last one, then http://www.worldcubeassociation.org/results/p.php?i=1982BORS01 succeeds at that. He was the only person at WC2003 with that property.

    There are in fact 70 people in the WCA database who have never successfully completed a solve.

    The FMC competition had only 4 successful solves in total, the least of any competition I would imagine.

    It's actually very hard to tell if someone DNF's on FMC because they don't know how to solve or because they they truly don't know how to solve. And someone who solves in 20 minutes would be more apt to try FMC than regular 3x3.

    It says 'should'. Check the start of the regulations, it links to a standard that defines the use of several words used in the regulations.
