As competitive gaming grows, more and more players are getting their achievements recognized as world records: the Guinness Book of World Records has already recognized players such as Daigo Umehara and Ryan Hart for their own achievements, and now another player joins their ranks.
Gonzalo “ZeRo” Barrios from Team SoloMid has been noted in the Guinness World Records 2017 Gamer’s Edition for holding the longest winning streak in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. From November 2014 to October 2015, ZeRo won an total of 53 SSB4 tournaments in a row.

ZeRo has uploaded his own reaction to this news to his YouTube channel, in this video:
ZeRo’s winning streak in Super Smash Bros. cemented his place at the top of the competitive Super Smash Bros. for Wii U hierarchy, much in the same way that EG|Justin Wong’s own 5 year win streak in Marvel vs. Capcom 2 established him as a legend in that game.
We here at Shoryuken congratulate ZeRo on this achievement!
