Regardless of whether or not england is a country or not, your comment is backwards thinking. Something does not become true because it is on a site. The site should reflect the truth (though can be influenced by personal opinion). The site has no jurisdiction over the rest of the world. Though it has total jurisdiction over the site, if they say an answer is correct, it is correct, whether you agree with it or not.
There are many reasons we have separate the football teams rather than be lumped into all playing for a United Kingdom team. The short answer is basically history.
An important thing to remember is the individual countries of the UK all have a strong sense of national identity. A Scot wants to play for and support Scotland's team - they wouldn't be caught dead cheering for England.
1) Some events (long jump, high jump, sprinting) are mostly determined by genetics, and genes haven't changed. Supposedly Jesse Owens would be just as fast as modern sprinters if he raced on a modern track.
2) The 1980s were a golden age of steroids that allowed many women to set records that might never be touched.
The longest standing record in athletics was set in 1983 by this woman.
