At first I thought it would be Macky in the past, Felix in the current, than I saw http://www.worldcubeassociation.org...gionId=&years=&show=100+Results&single=Single and I am pretty sure that this has never happened before
1 Haiyan Zhuang 30.94 China Xi'an Spring 2010
2 Haiyan Zhuang 31.81 China Xi'an Spring 2010
3 Haiyan Zhuang 32.27 China Shanghai Winter 2010
4 Haiyan Zhuang 32.84 China Nanjing Spring Open 2010
5 Haiyan Zhuang 33.56 China Nanjing Spring Open 2010
6 Haiyan Zhuang 35.78 China Inner Mongolia 2010
7 Haiyan Zhuang 35.91 China Shanghai Winter 2010
8 Haiyan Zhuang 35.96 China Beijing Summer Open 2009
9 Haiyan Zhuang 36.03 China Hunan Open 2010
10 Haiyan Zhuang 36.30 China Xi'an Spring 2010
11 Haiyan Zhuang 36.86 China Indonesian Championship 2010
12 Haiyan Zhuang 37.18 China Hangzhou Open 2010
13 Haiyan Zhuang 37.28 China Taiyuan 2010
14 Haiyan Zhuang 38.06 China Harbin Open 2009
15 Haiyan Zhuang 38.41 China Nanjing Spring Open 2010
16 Haiyan Zhuang 39.88 China Henan Open 2010

But what about making a list of all events?
Some people that dominated 1 or multiple events are Rama Temmink and Yumu Tabuchi, Erik Akkersdijk and Dan Cohen (5x5x5 shared dominance), Mátyás Kuti (half of the regular events and all of the blind events) vs Erik (the other half of the regular events)

So please everyone, provide your "domination" input and to keep it readable make sure you include Name, Event, Begin, End and when possible a link to the WCA-results that show the domination.

Chris Hardwick in 4bld and 5bld. He held the 5bld WR for more than four years, and the 4BLD WR for more than 3. Every one of his competition PBs have been WRs. This speaks for itself:

And who remembers when Erik was the undisputed King of Megaminx?

I think the obvious answer for holding a World Record the longest is Minh Thai. I don't think anyone will beat his record of 21 years. I mean, who else will be able to only compete in one competition, break the WR in that competition, and hold it for longer than 21 years? Talk about domination.
lol. There were a lot more competitions in the early 80s than just the WC 1982, and 22.95 was definitely not the fastest time ever made at these comps. But unfortunately most of their results have been lost. And WC 1982 was not an open competition, only the national champions were invited, which in particular means that all of them had already competed at least once before.
