    What about Mario Lemieux, the only hockey player in history to score 5 goals in different ways in 1 single hockey game: on December 31, 1988, he scored an even-strength goal, a power-play goal, a short-handed goal, a penalty shot goal and an empty net goal.

    The re-poker is way harder than the hat trick. Watching Cristiano, Messi and Lewandowski score 5 goals in a game is just impresive.

    You can technically get a quadruple double with turnovers as well.

    Triple hundred in Test Cricket, double hat-trick (4 wickets in 4 balls) also in Cricket.  6 6's in an over in cricket.  Try to remember there are sports played outside the US which the US isn't the main player in.

    The category is for individual performance but for #1 (pitchers perfect game) you rely on the other 8 guys in the field to make plays, so how is that an individual performance?




    How could u miss Mr. Pacman and no one can beat his record. 8 division world champion in boxing .

    You'd guys didn't considered cricket's rarest 6 sixes in an over and 10 wickets in a single innings......both of which are a lot more difficult and rare than most of these achievements in this list.💁🏻‍♂️

    shooting a 59 or under in golf would probably be a better single game achievement. Happens much less.

    5 goals in a hockey game.
    To this day Mario Lemieux is the only player to accomplish this in five different situations (even strength, power play, penalty kill, penalty shot and empty net)
