Back in July, we reported on Italian Street Fighter 5 player SchiacciSempre's journey to take then newcomer Abigail to Diamond rank in just under 23 hours. He's repeated the race with Zeku, who dropped into the game on Tuesday, with an even faster time.

The parameters were simple: make it to 14,000 League Points in 24 hours or less. Stream audiences watched as SchiacciSempre kicked off his venture on his brand new Rookie-ranked account after Zeku became available on Tuesday.

Not only was Zeku brand new, but the character is essentially two fighters in one. Zeku can shift between his young and old self, both of which have completely different move sets to grasp and implement.

With three hours and 27 minutes left on the clock, SchiacciSempre defeated an Ultra Diamond ranked Dhalsim and reached 14,030 LP, smashing his previous record with Abigail.

He attempted the same feat with Menat when she was released a few months ago, but was unable to make his goal in the 24 time frame.

You can watch the entire journey on SchiacciSempre's Twitch archive. Here is the moment wherein Schiacci won his final match and crossed the threshold. .
