Munich - FC Bayern München have proven to be once again this season with many more records sent tumbling en route to securing their 24th national crown.

What may seem like an historic achievement, winning the title with seven games to spare and going 53 games unbeaten, has actually been bettered by other clubs and individuals, although not necessarily in football. looks at other trailblazers who have marked their names down in the history books for phenomenal sporting achievements...

In basketball, the Chicago Bulls won six NBA titles in eight years, missing out only in the two years the legendary Michael Jordan took a sabbatical. In 1995/96, they won an NBA record 72 consecutive games, so Bayern still have quite a way to go before catching the benchmarkers from across the Atlantic. Previously, the Boston Celtics won 11 NBA titles in 13 years, including eight in a row between 1959 and 1966.

In 2001, the Seattle Mariners won 116 games in the regular baseball season. They were beaten 46 times, but in the context of the USA's extensive baseball campaign, their run of wins remains unrivalled, and greater than the New York Yankees' previous record of 114 victories in the 1998 season.

Is it possible to win 4,000 times in your career? It is if you are jockey Tony McCoy, who raced his way through that barrier in late 2013. In each of his 18 years riding professionally, he rode more winners than anybody else, picking up a record 289 winners in his best season. Nobody could keep up with him, literally.

Tiger Woods may not have won as many majors in golf as Jack Nicklaus, but no other golfer has dominated the world game as much as he did since becoming the youngest winner of the US Masters in 1997. He is the only player ever to win four majors in a row - now dubbed a 'Tiger-slam' - and only in three seasons during a 12-year spell did he fail to win at least one of golf's four major prizes.

Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal went 81 matches unbeaten on clay before succumbing to another of his seemingly invincible ilk, Roger Federer, whose own 65-game winning streak on grass was conversely brought to an end by the Spaniard in 2008. The Swiss also holds the record number of consecutive match victories on hard courts, going 56 games before being beaten by, guess who, in Dubai in 2006.

In darts, Phil Taylor is about as invincible as Bayern appear. Not one of his rivals enjoys a positive head-to-head record against a man who has dominated the darts scene for almost a quarter of a century, winning 79 major titles and 187 tournaments. He has featured in all but three of the 20 Professional Darts Corporation World Finals, darts' answer to the Champions League, which by comparison is into its 22nd edition in its current guise, and has featured 17 different clubs in its finals.

The snooker world belonged to Stephen Hendry between 1990 and 1998 as he retained the world number one spot for eight untouchable years, winning the world snooker title five years in a row, and clinching a record seven in his career, which started with him becoming the youngest ever world champion at the age of 21.

"We are the most dominant team in the history of the world" was the self-righteous declaration of the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team ahead of their penultimate test match against England in November 2013. With just one defeat in their last 34 internationals, they are looking unbeatable beyond their intimidating Haka pre-match tribal war dance.

In footballing terms, though, you have to search long and hard to find comparable success to that of the current Bayern team. They fell just two games short of matching FC Porto's 55-game unbeaten streak, which ended in 2012, but were a long way behind the longest unbeaten run in European football, which belongs to FC Steaua Bucuresti. The Romanians did not lose in 106 games between 1986 and 1989.
