Esports player Ryan Hart has secured a coveted place in the Guinness World Records 2017 Gamer’s Edition for taking the epic gaming challenge to celebrate the launch of Street Fighter V.

Professional e-sports player Ryan Hart (UK) has just set a Guinness World Records title for the Most Consecutive Opponents on the latest installment of the long-running fighting video game franchise, Street Fighter V. He went up against an incredible 260 people during an ambitious 11-hour record attempt at GAME in Manchester’s Intu Trafford Centre.

“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.”

Ryan was able to beat his challengers in every single game even when he was only required to win at least 90% of the matches. 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.
