    WCA doesn't store MBLD results with less than 0 points, so this is more of a trivia question to see if anyone happens to know the answer.

    Most of the requests on this thread have been things that could be calculated with some crunching of the official database. But I think this sort of thing is also a reasonable use of this thread.

    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)

    WRs: Max Park (3)
    Championship: Erik Akkersdijk / Chris Hardwick (8)
    Sum: Erik Akkersdijk / Chris Hardwick (8)

    I think those are all right.

    And compare that to Feliks, who has 8 WRs and 25 WC podiums

    Kevin has 9 podiums. I would have thought he meant all-time WRs but he didn't specify.

    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,
    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.

    I meant WRs, not WRs in most events.

    It's not clear what you mean by WRs. Does Feliks have 8 WRs or does he have 117 WRs.

    The longest I've seen is one of Serhii Koksharov - 57 and still counting.

    Well, nope. All his official 3bld attempts are DNFs. But I didn't count DNSes so can it be accepted as a streak? Or did you mean a pure DNF streak with no DNSes in-between?

    Oh right sorry for some reason the first time I tried to click on the guy it led me to another who had a lot of 3BLD successes. I don’t even know how it happened
