Justin Wong entered into the Guinness World Records not once, but twice for accomplishments in the Evolution Tournament series

Justin Wong is considered to be a top player in many Capcom fighting games. Perhaps most notably, he is considered to be one of the best players ever within the Marvel vs. Capcom series.


It seems that the Guinness World Records has taken notice of Justin's accomplishments and sent him not one, but two plaques.

One of the records was awarded to Justin Wong as a result of winning the most Evolution Tournaments of a single game (Marvel vs. Capcom 2) between the years of 2002 and 2010. The other record was awarded to Justin Wong for winning the most Evolution Tournaments of any game between the years of 2002 and 2014 (which is inclusive of the other reward).

Justin Wong won the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 tournament at EVO for 6 times between 2002 and 2010, while winning any tournament at EVO for 8 times for 2002 and 2014. It will likely be a very long time before anybody will be able to surpass these records.
