Nigerian chess champion and child education advocate, Tunde Onakoya has broken the Guinness World Record (GWR) for the longest chess marathon.

He achieved the feat in the early hours of Saturday, April 20, after surpassing the 56 hrs 09 mins 37 seconds record achieved by two Norwegians, Hallvard Haug Flatebø and Sjur Ferkingstad, on November 11, 2018.

Tunde who isn’t slowing down, will continue playing for more hours without losing a single game. His “ultimate goal” is to raise the sum of $1,000,000 which would be used to “transform the lives of underserved children across Africa”.
