    $\begingroup$ In what country was this asked - it might help narrow down the sport. $\endgroup$ – Ken Y-N Apr 19 '16 at 9:20

Probably the date could be (considering 26533500 as a timestamp format of a date): Wed, 04 Nov 1970 02:25:00 GMT but there's not in the history of sport that I remember. Someone reminds something important in this date?

Partial:

26:53.3500 looks like the time needed to run the 10 km race (for a professional), but I wasn't able to find someone that did this. It's not the record or the first one to go under 27 minutes.

As Francesco suggested, if 26533500 is a timestamp, we get 4th of November 1970.

I've checked this website and found this in terms of sport:

Famous People Born: Corey Schwab: North Battleford, Saskatchewan -- NHL goalie (New Jersey Devils) Tim DeBoom: American triathlete
