What is the difference between a world record and an olympic record?

The OR stands for Olympic Record which is a record made only at the olympic games. The WR ( world Record) is a record made by an individual of that sport at any other event worldwide. Sort of like a guiness world record. However if a world record is beaten at the olympic games then both OR and WR will change to that new time or score.


Why is an Olympic record not considered to be a world record?

An Olympic record is the greatest achieved in the Olympic games. A world record is the greatest achieved anywhere, ever. In some instances an Olympic record is also the world record.


Is an olympic record the same as a world record?

No they are not the same. A World Record can be broken at any time. Whereas an Olympic Record can only be broken at the Olympic Games (it's a glorified Meet Record.) Keep in mind that a World Record CAN be set at the Olympic Games (which would in turn, automatically break the Olympic Record as well.) A World Record outranks an Olympic Record.


Is breaking the world record in an Olympic game delete the former Olympic record?

Yes. The new record becomes both the Olympic Record and the World Record. You will notice this is the case for several events.


What is the difference between the Australian Record the olympic record the commenwealth record and the world record and when can they be set?

Does a world record at the Olympics become the Olympic record also?

Yes, it automatically replaces the current Olympic record.
