As World XC was going on today, I was thinking how Kamworor has won a world title each of the last five years much like Paul Tergat who won world xc five years in a row from 1995 to 1999.
I was trying to think of who might have had a streak longer than that.
The only person I could think of was Bekele. Bekele won a world title of some sort for 8 straight years, from every year from 2002 to 2009.
People like Farah and Geb don't make the cut as they never won anything in the off years like 2014 for Farah or 1994 and 1998 for Geb. Geb won a world/Olympic title of some sort for every odd year from 1993 through 2001 plus add in the Olympics of 1996 and 2000 but nothing in 1994 or 1998. Farah won a world title from 2011 through 2017 plus the Olympics of 2016 but nothing in 2014.
