I have many segments with inconsistent CRs, eg example

It's impossible to run like this! I have many other segments with people with pace better than Usain Bolt 😅

I think you could add the option of report inconsistent records, or creat a simple checks, for examples, no human can run under 1:10 min/km! Maybe creat an algorithm to check pace and information like acelaration and gps. If the run has too many inconsistencies, like too many acceleration spikes, speed over the human capacity, jumped buildings, then they are not eligible for CRs.

Hello @vagner_acorja 

Thanks so much for your post.

Good news - we already have a flag tool available that let's you flag an activity when you see an invalid time on a segment leaderboard.  Please read through the information at that link and let us know if you have any questions about how or when to flag.

We do have a system on Strava that detects and prevents many invalid efforts from appearing on segment leaderboards. We don't catch everything but we are always working on refining and improving this process.

If you see invalid times on segments, the first step is to use the activity flag tool.  If the Athlete doesn't correct their behavior after getting their activities flagged, you have the option to report that Athlete to Strava Support so we can follow up.

Hello @Jane , thanks for your answer 

I didn't know about this feature you commented on, it's not very straightforward but ok.

I had some doubts: will the athlete know who flagged the activity? Or will he/she just get a warning? I don't want to pick a fight with anyone, I just want a fair competition.
