Guinness Olympic Records That Would Probably Never Be Broken

1.Kim Yun-Mi is the youngest gold medal winner ever. One way to guarantee you hold an Olympic record forever is for the rules to change immediately after you set it. She won the gold in the women's 3,000-meter relay skating event when she was just 13 years old. Immediately after her achievement the minimum competition age was changed to 15 pretty much guaranteeing her record is permanent.

2.Ian Miller's 10 appearance. He's competed in the most Olympic Games with 10 appearances over the course of 40 years.Competing in the Olympics is hard as they only come around every four years, which means you have to stay in shape for long periods of time—and you're four years older every time. Training is expensive and exhausting making it very unlikely Miller's record will ever be broken.

3. Usain Bolt's 9.63 seconds run in the 100 metre race. Usain Bolt is indisputably the fastest human being in history.He set the olympic record in 2012. Someone's going to have to run really fast to take away his overall record.
