Dutch duo denied Guinness World Record find issues with winning attempt: "I got the feeling of injustice. This is absurd and this is simply not possible"

Frank Posthumus and Wyan Alders threw darts for 53 consecutive hours last October, but to their surprise this record was not accepted by the Guinness World Records book as two British players played for 60 hours three months before. However they have now found flaws in this attempt.

Posthumus and Alders said they watched the record attempt on Facebook and found multiple issues with it.

“For example, before our attempt, we asked whether a fallen dart could be picked up by someone else. "No" was the answer. A witness or referee must not interfere with play. Then you watch the British attempt, and it doesn't happen two or three times there, but at least fifteen times ”, says Bart de Vries, organiser of the record attempt by Posthumus and Alders, to RTL Nieuws.

"In addition, an oche was also missing, the referees helped the players and stopped the clock at 60 hours, the official record, however, is 58 hours. “We had already confronted Guinness with what we thought was an impossible time deduction from the British record. But they say they talked to both Britons. That was their strange reaction ”, De Vries continues.

"This is absurd and simply not possible"

“We have been really fooled. It seems that Guinness and the British are in cahoots. At first I was terribly angry seeing their images, but I started to laugh more and more. It is really absurd and very unprofessional about Guinness in our eyes. ”

Posthumus and Alders now hope to be awarded the record in the end. “We hope that justice will still prevail and that we can become world record holders. We first said to each other that we should forget about that record, because it will not go well anymore. But after seeing the images, little by little I got the feeling of injustice. This is absurd and this is simply not possible. ”
