Olympic Records




The Olympic records are a documented form of the best sports performance of an individual athlete in a specific sport. The record is of an individual athlete only. Team efforts are not recognized.

The Olympic records are required to be set in the Olympic venue itself.

The individual athlete must set the record by his or her own effort. The athlete must not take the help of external factors like performance enhancing drugs. The individual record of the athlete display his agility, sports skill and endurance.

The Olympic records are not equal to the specific sports' world record. They are the superlative performances set by the athletes only in sports events held at Olympic venues. The Olympic records are validated by the International Olympic Committee or IOC. The 2008 Summer Games are to be held at the Chinese capital city of Beijing. The 2008 Beijing Summer Games promises to be a landmark spectacle-and a setting for new Olympic records.
