    Even if you didn't record blocks and steals can't you just watch the old videos and RETROACTIVELY count all of the blocks and steals to retroactively award a quadruple double?

    In baseball perfect game relies on all the players/
    In football the 250yd game relies on all the offensive players ...the offensive line especially.
    Where's the 6pt game in NHL? Sittler did it and the record still stands.
    In baseball a guy pitched a perfect game...on acid. look up Doc Ellis.

    No such thing as a keeper or a hat trick in football. That is socker. Also a par three and a par four talk about the hole not the course. It would be nice if the one doing the video knew what they were talking about. And are you kidding me with the perfect game being number one? The immaculate inning is far more impressive. 9 pitches 3 strikeouts.

    Where is 4 home runs in a single MLB game. Only been done 18 times in history so it's more rare than a perfect game and arguably harder to do seeing as a perfect game has to be done by a good pitcher throwing a good game and the defense behind him has to be having a good day defensively as well but to hit 4 home runs in one game the batter has to be having a perfect day hitting and get unbelievably lucjy

    1.) 9000 points in decathlon:
    Only 2 (!!!) athletes achieved this in history of this impressive sport.
    1st man who broke the line of 9000 points was Roman Šebrle from Czech republic with 9026 points in 2001.
    Only Ashton Eaton from USA was better then; 9039 points in 2012 and 9045 in 2015 which is current world record.
    This is probably the most dificult result you can achieve in sports I think. Decathlon itself is really difficult and I really admire all athletes who are into this sport. :)
    2.) 90 metres in javelin throw men:
    Only 18 athletes in history broke this top notch distance and only 1 was even better. Of course, it was legendary Jan Železný from Czech republic and his unbelievable record 98.48 metres (!!!) from 1996. He is still the only one, who sent his javelin over 95 metres. :)
    3.) 70 metres in javelin throw woimen:
    Heck yeah! Another athlete from Czech republic is the best! With 72.28 metres, Barbora Špotáková set world record in 2008. And there are only 4 women, who broke 70 m distance. Maria Abakumova, Osleidys Menéndez and Cristina Obergföll. :)
    4.) Long jump men:
    So, who will be the first over 9.00 metres? Yes, only Mike Powell from USA was closest to this magical number. With his 8.95 metres from Toky0 1991, he still hold world record even to these days. :)
    So, I know, that those are not "single game accomplishments" events, but it really needs a big big attention, cuz all of them are really impressive! :)

    I don't know if I should believe you any more, because i don't know where do you get information. In football there is a lot of goalscoring goalkeepers. In fact top goalscoring keeper has scored 131 goals (Rogério Ceni). José Luis Chilavert even scored hattrick! Your video is from 2016 and there has been 5 goals in Premier league since 2013... Sorry, but it's NOT SO RARE.

    • Luka Osirnik

      9Ballr a perfect game. You play 8 innings in mlb and about 9-10 players bat. So you’d have to go through the lineup at least twice for a perfect game. You have to think of all the possibilities that could happen (grand slam, homerun, or even fumbling with the ball). I’m not saying that the 100 points isn’t hard either, but they’re both totally different games.

    Some in other sports:
    - 4 wickets in 4 balls in cricket. Never accomplished in 140 years of Test cricket, but over 25 times in other first-class games and once in limited-overs (John Player League) cricket
    - 17 wickets in a match in cricket. Accomplished 20 times up to 1939, but declining wicket taking as it become too costly and time-consuming for young men to take up spin bowling made the feat almost impossible after the war
    - 15 goals in one (Australian Rules) football match. Last accomplished in the AFL in 1995, and only three times since 1978
    - Keeping an opponent goalless for an entire (Australian Rules) football game - not individual, but an extraordinary single game feat for a team’s defence. Last accomplished in the VFL/AFL by St. Kilda against Richmond in 1961, and in the WAFL on a waterlogged Arena Joondalup in 2003, but these are the only occurrences since 1922 in the four biggest senior leagues
    - Six tries in a rugby league game. In the NSWRFL this was accomplished half a dozen times (one of eight, one of seven tries) up to 1950, but no one has scored six in a game since Jack Troy did so for Newtown against Easts on 8 July that year. Six tries were scored by Ken Nagas in an international Super League game in 1997, and Martin Offiah scored ten in one game a few years before that.

    How is the Hockey Quinella not on this list? It's a miracle that one was recorded in history. Not only must you score five goals, which is very hard by the way, but those five goals must be in different situation; An even strength goal, a powerplay goal, a shorthanded goal, a penalty shot goal and an empty netter. Shorthanded goals are a rare sight in the NHL and penalty shot even rarer, Also even if the guys manage to get even strength goal,powerplay goal, shorthanded goal and a penalty shot goal, the other teams must have a close enough score so that retiring their goalie seems a good idea, So not only must you and your team have an excellent night and be lucky, but you can't dominate the other team if you want them to retire their goalie from the net.
