Technicality of WRs (OH, BLD)

Hello, I have been thinking about how it would work out in the following scenario: *These people and times are fake* *WCA Regulations still apply* Dan breaks the 3x3 Single WR with a time of 5.01 seconds. Then, James breaks the 3x3 OH Single WR with a time of 4.99 seconds. Would this mean that James holds both the OH Single and regular WR? Same goes for the average. Case 1: 3x3 S WR: Dan (5.01) 3x3 OH S WR: James (4.99) Case 2: 3x3 S WR: James (4.99) 3x3 OH S WR: James (4.99) Thanks!

As far as I know, all WCA events are treated as separate events and WRs are not interchangeable. So, in case 1 Dan will have the 3x3 WR and James the 3x3 OH WR In case 2, James will have both the 3x3 and 3x3 OH WR and they are separate WRs.

hcfong is right. Each event is separate, and results pertain only to that event. The "normal" 3x3x3 category means you can solve any way you want, so if someone gets a WR even if they're using only one hand, that time would stand only for the 3x3x3 category.
