6000 – The score that Nicola Bendetti (ITA)recorded whilst winning World Cup #3, this was the first time any Pentathlete has scored 6000 since the introduction of the new point tables in 2010. If only Benedetti could have scored that in London!
5512 – Highest overall points score by a women in 2012, by Elodie Clouvel at World Cup #2. This score would have also secured her gold in London by
1096 – Fencing score that both Ilya Shugarov (RUS) – World Cup #4 and Amelie Caze – World Championships achieved.
228 – The difference between David Svoboda’s Olympic winning total of 5928 compared to his average scores from 2012 of 5700
10:58.86 – was Anastayisa Prokopenko’s (BLR) time in the combined event at World Cup #1 which was the fastest time for a women in 2012. Still 8.86 seconds behind Victoria Tereshuk’s (UKR) world record set in 2011.
9:41.00 – The time that the Italian speeders Nicola Benedetti & Ricardo de Luca managed to complete the Combined event at World Cup #2 and the World Championships respectively.
2:06.97 – Quickest swim time by a women, again Elodie Clouvel (FRA), but this time at the World Championships. This would have beaten 2 women in the 200m heats at London 2012.
1:54.25 – Jamie Cooke’s 50m World record in qualification at World Cup #1. To put this in perspective, if Cooke was a women this time would have won him silver in the Women's 200m at London 2012.

28.69 – The total time that Aleksander Lesun (RUS) shot all 3 shooting rounds at World Cup #1.
28.60 – The total time that Gintare Venckauskaite (LTU) took to shoot her 3 series of shooting. Quicker time even than the men!
7.60 – The astonishing time that Ricardo Vega (MEX) shot his 5 shots in one shooting series at the Youth World Championships.
8.40 – Time that took Mariana Areco (MEX) and Nicole Campaner (FRA) to shoot one shooting series at the Youth World Championships.
7 – The gold medals won by Russian men in the major senior competitions in 2012 out of 9! But they missed out on the one that counted at the Olympic Games.
