Track and Field (athletics) Men's World Records

First box is the record holding athlete's name, second box is for the world record mark in that event. Field events are in metric units and not feet, and all distances above 800m can be expressed without hundredths of a second. Good luck Athletics Fans!

The type-ins are all over the place, sometimes last names are accepted, sometimes you need first AND last names and sometimes first names are enough.

It's Jürgen Schult not Shult.

Thanks for the feedback, my first quiz and I knew a lot of the names are hard to spell (especially Guerrouj) so I tried to make it easy but I'm reverting it back to normal for all names except for Guerrouj and Lavellenie
