Tunde Onakoya Sets World Record for Chess Marathon 

Tunde Onakoya

Nigeria’s chess grandmaster Tunde Onakoya has broken the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous chess-playing session.

In 2018, Norwegian players Hallvard Haug Flatebø and Sjur Ferkingstad set the previous Guinness World Record at 56 hours and 9 minutes.

Onakoya’s original goal was to complete the task in 58 hours, however he has since surpassed that time and is now over 60 hours, setting a new Guinness World Record.

Early on Saturday morning, Onakoya announced this on his X account. Onakoya posted a picture of the record being broken along with the caption, “We have done it.” “We’re pushing to 60 hours, guys. We’re not stopping yet. Let’s keep going. “We have a fundraising goal to meet for the education of African children around the world. This is our why – the reason we are doing this.

“Let’s demonstrate to the world the incredible power of love. Together, we can make this happen.”

Hilda Baci, a fellow record-breaking Nigerian, and Pelumi Nubi have congratulated Onakoya on his Instagram page.

President Bola Tinubu and the governor of Lagos State are also among the people who celebrate and congratulated Tunde for using his rare talent to create opportunities for young children and youths across the nation.
