There are some notorious users who destroy the leaderboards. With swimming it would be easy to implement to filter it out. If the avg pace is faster than the actual world record, it is definitely false recording/wrong activity type/bad joke/etc.

Just for help, the actual pace of WR for 50m freestyle is 40.32 sec/100m (50m WR is 20.16)

The swim challenge leaderboard look like this now:


And the false users activity, you can see, avg pace is 0s/100m:


I will flag this activity, but I am fed up with this guys notorious recordings. I would be happy if he/she would not join the challenge or the leaderboard would be clean of these crap.

Also if Strava wants to look serious, it should ban all of these things, as it makes the whole challenge/leaderboard/social thing look like a bad joke. Who wants to subscribe to a bad joke?

This is similar to activities without HR monitors or Power Meters on the cycling leaderboard that must be discouraged and deleted. This is crucial for ensuring fair competition and accurate tracking of performance - swimming and other related activities. 


Strava challenges seem to be a joke. Strava just counts the "kudos", but does nothing, even if the solution would be very easy.

I will quit the challenges game from the next month, no need to see the leader boards what are filled with cheaters. As I see, the other leaderboards are even more infected. No need for me to get upset because strava does not want to cooperate and wants to outsource the work to the users.
