Best Answer

Set in 1996 by Simon Lessing, he broke the world record in the World Championship triathlon (Olympic distance) with a time of 1 hour, 39 minutes, 50 seconds at Cleveland. This record stands as of 2008. Due to the variety in courses during the olympic games, the world record is not official, however Simon Whitfeild holds the unofficial olympic record for triathlon at 1:48:24.02.

Ignore the original posting on this topic. Many Olympic Distance Tri's are won by individuals who are "just north of 2:00 hrs." The world record is 1:48 for men and 1:58 for women I believe. It depends on what you mean by "good time."

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.)

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.

The Olympics does not feature a 4000m distance for running and thus no record exists for it. In fact, Olympic running events jump from the 1500m to the 5000m. In regard to world records, the 4000m is again not recognized. The closest is the 2 mile (3219m) and the 5000m running events.
