This relates to a sport, a great accomplishment.

It is a word.


Another long shot:

sixer = sì (4 in Chinese) + x + èr (2 in Chinese)

The sport is cricket (hope fair play here as this was supplied by OP). A sixer may be informal, as just 'six' is the common term for hitting the ball over the boundary, scoring 6 runs.

This answer was greatly assisted by hints and recent knowledge of Grandpa's languages.

First try: A shot at this. Is it a

Quadruple-double as, quadruple is 4 times, and (using x again if needed) times 2 is double.

In basketball this is a double-digit number total in four of five - points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocked shots - in a game. In the NBA there have been four quadruple-doubles.

  • $\begingroup$ So I will give you a hint @Tom. My answer is Cricket as the sport and 4X2 is a single word used in it. With that and the Tag info you can get to it. $\endgroup$ – DrD Feb 10 '19 at 20:52

Is it



The women's world record 4x200m freestyle swimming relay is 7:42.08
which, to the nearest second, is 462 seconds, i.e 4x2s.

(This was set by Pang Jiaying, Yang Yu, Zhu Qianwei, and Liu Jing of The People's Republic Of China in Rome, 2009-07-30)

  • $\begingroup$ Then I would have said 4X200 not 2. But good guess. $\endgroup$ – DrD Feb 9 '19 at 18:35
