Winning streak (sports)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In sports, a winning streak refers to a consecutive number of games won. A winning streak can be held by a team, as in baseball, football, basketball, hockey, or by an individual, as in tennis. A winning streak that extends through a single season is known as a perfect season.

The longest recorded winning streak in any professional sports is Pakistani Jahangir Khan's 555 consecutive wins in squash from 1981 to 1986. In the same sports, the Australian Heather McKay may hold a claim to an even longer winning streak, as she went unbeaten for 19 years, from 1962 to 1981. However, an official tally of her wins may not exist. In 2013, the Dutch wheelchair tennis player Esther Vergeer retired with an active 10-year-long winning streak of 470 matches, including a streak of 250 consecutive sets won.[1]

A winning streak is not to be confused with an unbeaten streak, where teams can tie as well as win to maintain their streak. For example, if a football team wins four games in a row, plays a draw, wins three more, plays two draws in a row, and then loses, they had a 10-game unbeaten streak. Their longest winning streak in this sequence was four. If a sports league declares overtime losses different from regulation losses in that they are scored like ties (such as ice hockey leagues where there is both a 4-on-4 overtime and a penalty shootout to break ties), an unbeaten streak (unlike a winning streak) continues if at the end of regulation, the game is tied. This is because losses in overtime and shootout are declared regulation ties, and teams accumulate one point for the draw. As such, if a team wins four consecutive games, then loses two consecutive games in overtime, then loses in a shootout, and then wins three consecutive games, that team has a ten-game unbeaten streak (seven wins and three ties at the end of regulation).

Swimming[edit]

Overall[edit]

Johnny Weissmuller[edit]

Weissmuller never lost a swimming race during his entire amateur career, including three individual Olympic gold medals. He is purported to have told the other swimmers in his Olympic final that they could fight it out for second place

Tamas Darnyi[edit]

Darnyi was undefeated his entire international career in both the 200m and 400m Individual medley races, lasting from 1985 to 1993, though he did not hold the world record for the entirety of the period (another person broke it in a race that Darnyi did not compete in. He later reclaimed the record).

Roland Matthes[edit]

Matthes was undefeated in the 100 and 200 meter backstroke races from 1968-1974, though he lost the world record in races he did not compete in during that span. He later lost both records for good at the end of his career when he earned a bronze in the 100m backstroke behind John Naber, who also set the world record in the 200m backstroke

Vladimir Salnikov[edit]

Salnikov won all 61 of his 1500m freestyle races from 1977 to 1986. The streak ended when he finished fourth at the 1986 FINA World Championships

Michael Phelps[edit]

Michael Phelps was undefeated in the finals of the 200m butterfly for ten years. Before the 2012 Olympics where he was defeated by Chad le Clos the last time Phelps had lost the race was in 2002 when he lost to Olympic champion Tom Malchow at the 2002 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships

NASCAR Cup Series[edit]

10 wins — 1967 Richard Petty[9]

Note: Because of the post-1972 schedule overhaul, NASCAR will differentiate records from pre-1972 and post-1972. The primary schedule overhaul eliminated midweek races, thus cutting the schedule from 48 to around 30 races (36 currently), and a minimum race distance (first 250 miles (400 km), later shortened to 300 km (190 mi)). Since many pre-1972 races were under 100 miles (such as 62.5 mile races held in Islip, New York, and the current non-championship Budweiser Duel then being a championship race at 100 miles until 1967), some NASCAR records are differentiated that way, similar to the NBA differentiating "fewest points" records with pre and post-1954 records, when the 24-second shot clock was introduced.

Post–1972

4 wins (tie) (length of shortest race, in miles, in brackets):

Note: In seven of the eight instances, at least one of the wins was in a 500-mile race. Mark Martin's 1993 streak ended at Darlington, where the Mountain Dew Southern 500 was stopped 16 laps early because of darkness.

However, a national organizing structure for women's intercollegiate basketball did not exist until the AIAW was established in 1971; the NCAA did not begin organizing women's sports until 1981.
