First ever cubing competition in the entire Krasnoyarskij Kraj area lead to a case when we have 10 times more first-timers than the competitors with the WCA IDs.
No comps in here were hurting my feelings all this time because this is my homeland :D
Edit: still no comps in Sakha which area is 3 million square kilometers (1/5 of Russia)

Here
all listed excludes feliks
Number of different events with world records: 7 by Mátyás Kuti (5 by him, Dan Cohen, Erik Akkersdijk, and Max Park if you exclude Magic and Master Magic).
Speaking of Mátyás Kuti,
Longest DNF streak for 3BLD officially?
He did 33 3BLD attempts without a success. EDIT: see below
Most total world records is Erik Akkersdijk with a measly 33.
I think the most number of WC podiums is 8.

Actually, no - most of those were successful but disqualified.

I didn't do a search for who has the most successive BLD attempts without a success, but I do remember that Bruce Norskog missed his first 27 attempts before finally getting a success. And his first success was 9:59.43, at a competition that had a hard cutoff at 10 minutes!!!

Mátyás Kuti actually had a 100% success rate. Its the reason for his perfect accuracy that led to the regulations requiring a board between the competitor and the cube in addition to a blindfold.

Marcin Zalewski also has a long streak of DNFs, that weren't all legitimate DNFs.
