Don Bradman once scored 501 runs in a first class cricket match. That will never, ever be broken. 501 for an entire team is not good, its ****ING amazing. And this guy did it on his own. Just crazy.

Margaret Court's 24 grand slam titles (women's tennis). She isn't considered the GOAT because a lot came in the Australian open which was considered quite obscure before the late 80s. Steffi Graf, no matter how dominant she was, won 22.

Sampras broke a record unbeaten for over 40 years in winning his 14th slam 5 years ago. However, Fed might break it by as early as next year.

Fed is more dominant at his sport than most of these guys mentioned even though the 20 or so slams he will eventually win aren't as impressive as some of these records.

soviet/russian greco-roman wrestler alexander karelin went thirteen straight years without losing a single match, the last six of those years without giving up a point.

it got to a point where he got the nickname "the experiment" since everyone believed he was created by mad soviet scientists.

Actually, Don Bradman never scored 501 in a first class match. His highest ever first class score was 452 not out, playing for New South Wales v Queensland in Sydney 1929-30.

However, Brian Lara the great West Indian scored 501 not out, playing for Warwickshire v Durham in Birmingham 1994. Brian Lara also holds the World Record for the Highest individual score in Test cricket of 400 not out, playing for the West Indies vs England at St John's 2003-04.

I also don't think anyone will win more World Surfing Titles than Kelly Slater who has currently won 8... God I wish he was an Aussie.
