Michael Smith set a new Guinness World Record for the highest cumulative score in one minute ahead of the 2016 Champions League of Darts in Cardiff.
The 'Highest Darts Score in a minute' record benchmark score of 550 was set by Guinness World Records, with no-one previously able to beat this score, yet it was smashed twice in a matter of moments on Friday.
With the independent adjudicator from Guinness World Records watching on and ensuring the record attempt met their official standards, first ‘Jackpot’ Adrian Lewis set a new score of 559, before it was them smashed by Michael Smith’s 581 total.
"I'm enormously proud of this achievement," said Smith. "It's amazing to think I could be regarded in the same breath as some of the Guinness World Record holders out there - hopefully I can use this success and take it forward to the Unibet Champions League of Darts this weekend."
The Unibet Champions League of Darts sees the world's top eight players battle it out over 2 days for a top prize of £100,000 and is televised live on BBC Sport from September 24-25.
