Can 'claim the world record' and 'win the world record' be the same meaning?

No one can win a world record; it is not a formal event. You can gain, break or claim a world record. I have seen it used but technically, it is incorrect to use the term win unless you are in a formal competition. You can win an event with a world record. For example, to win the tour de France with a new world record for fastest time.
