Category:World record holders

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

This category is for articles about a subject who at some point set a world record. They still qualify for this category even if they no longer hold the record because it was later surpassed, since they held it at some point in the past; much like deceased people are no longer actively doing politics but are still categorized as politicians.

In the case of sports world records, since many editors do not grasp the above, it has proved helpful to provide separate categories for record setters (including former record holders) and record holders (as this is often interpreted only to mean current holders).


This category has the following 4 subcategories, out of 4 total.
