Record breaker Dean Gould has turned his hand to a new challenge – and is hoping to snatch a title from a former world champion.
Mr Gould holds 30 records for unusual activities, including beer mat flipping, coin snatching, stamp licking, eating and memory feats.
Now he is aiming for a darts record – the fastest 301 score.
He held the record for three minutes at London’s Olympia, but it was taken away by 1983 darts world champion Keith Deller, who beat his 33 seconds by hitting 301 in 25 seconds.
Mr Gould, 48, of Church Road, Old Felixstowe, said: “We each had five attempts to break the record.
You may also want to watch:
“On my last attempt I managed to complete the 301, breaking the record by three seconds, but then Keith did a 130 check-out, ending with a bullseye in just 25 seconds.
“One minute I was on this massive high and the next I had really come down with a bump. Someone always wants to beat your record, but that was the shortest time I had ever held one!” He will attempt the record at Felixstowe Royal British Legion on August 12 at noon.
