Update: We've been informed that parts of this story were erroneous - This was actually FA|Ryan Hart's fourth Guiness World Record, and he's been competing since 1994, not 1998.

FA|Ryan Hart, one of the most celebrated fighting game players in the genre's history, has been active competitively since 1994.

In this time, he's been granted the honor of receiving a Guinness World Record not only once, not twice, but thrice. The first time was for "Longest Winning Streak in Street Fighter 4", acquired in 2010 with 169 match wins in a row, while the second time was "Most international fighting videogame championship wins", acquired due to his 450 victories in 20 different countries from 1994 to 2015. The sourced story does not specify what the third record was.

Hit the jump to hear about his latest exploits.
Now, a fourth record has been assigned to him, namely the record for "Most consecutive opponents beaten in Street Fighter 5", with a whopping 260 match wins, which took 11 hours to complete with Guinness World Records adjucator Pravin Patel present to ensure the record was attained legitimately.

Not only that, but his first opponent was actually quite the familiar face to Street Fighter fans... Source: Guinness World Records.
