Professional e-sports athlete Ryan Hart (UK) has just set a Guinness World Records title for the Most consecutive opponents on Street Fighter V, going up against an incredible 260 people during an ambitious 11-hour record attempt at GAME in Manchester’s intu Trafford Centre.
Playing continuously, with no rest breaks, Ryan was required to win at least 90% of the matches – but the talented gamer managed to beat his challengers in every single game.
Overseen by official Guinness World Records adjudicator Pravin Patel, Ryan took on the epic gaming challenge to celebrate the launch of the latest instalment of the long-running fighting videogame franchise.
Speaking about his record, Ryan Hart said: “I’m thrilled to have set a new Guinness World Record for Street Fighter V, I feel it complements the longevity my gaming career has had and I’m really happy about that. Not being allowed to take any breaks whatsoever for 11 hours was really tough. There were times in the challenge where I just wanted it to be over but I tried to stay calm and think in small steps.”
As a result of his achievement Hart has secured a coveted place in the Guinness World Records 2017 Gamer’s Edition book, out later this year.
