The 72 victories of Theodora in a span of almost 3 years were obtained only in matches of the Italian championship and without considering the then Champions Cup; in men’s volleyball the Cus Torino led by Silvano Prandi reached 51 consecutive successes between January 1980 and March 1982. Overseas the Penn State team reached 109 in the space of 2 years between 2015 and 2017 (from here players like Courtney, Hancock and Washington came out). University students, huh. Basketball also has its records: the legendary Simmenthal Milano made 47 in a row in the league in the 60s, up to the USA, at 58 between the 1992 Olympics and the 2002 World Cup. a similar record for Milan recorded between May 1991 and March 1993; ten years ago Juventus stopped at 49, while Bayern Munich remained unbeaten for 53 games between 2012 and 2014. In this case we are talking about a discipline in which, unlike volleyball and basketball, there is also a draw; the same goes for water polo in which the Pro Recco men’s team, the most successful in the world, excels. Again the unbeaten streak reached 73 at the end of the 2017 season. — M.C.
