Sorry if someone else already asked this but has anyone got a WR/CR/NR single for his/her solve then get another WR/CR/NR single in the same average? E.g. Oliver Tafunai of Samoa has got a 36.95 (NR) for his 1st solve, then got a 27.05 (another NR) for his 2nd.

I think that his question was about unique competitors to podium at a competition. Of course, having 54 podium prizes is rather easy at a large competition with all events, but it would be rare to see those prizes distributed among a large number of people, as he mentioned. (Theoretically, of course, there could be more than 54 unique podium prizes given out!)

Does someone have the slowest pyraminx averages to podium?

I feel I'm up there somewhere (9.28)
I don't know the slowest of all time, but I don't think a 9.28 would be that high on the list. Looking at old competitions, it was rare for podiums to be even sub-10. I find this one particularly interesting (38.93 average for 3rd place).

I just found something funny:

Jakob Fiechter
from Austria has 79 skewb solves (+ one DNF), ranging from 2.84 (NR) to 7.86 (no. 158 in all Austrian skewb solves, exluding Austrian Open last weekend).

So that means exactly half of the 158 best Austrian skewb results are from him. Futhermore 74 of the top100 Austrian cube results are by him and 48 (!) of the top50 Austrian skewb results are from him.

Edit: Even weirder: The top 36 Austrian 6x6 results are by Michael Röhrer (and 56 out of top58). And similarly in 7x7.
