  Longest Marathon Billiards Match-world record set by Rikki Cunningham   

 GREENSBORO, NC, USA--Rikki Cunningham, 33, played pool at Shooter's Sports Bar and Billiard for 72 hours-setting the new world for the Longest Marathon Billiards Match.

   Photo: Rikki played 8-ball with 80 different opponents in the community who came out to support this cause. Rikki played continuously with at least 2 witnesses at all times. (enlarge photo)

   The event was used as a fund raiser for his deceased friends family.

Cunningham's friend Gerardo Urbina was tragically killed in July, when he was electrocuted and died on the campus of UNCG. The former Marine leaves behind a wife and three children. Rikki raised $2,238.49 for the Urbina Children's fund, this was all heart!!   

   Bar manager, Louise Gillespie, jumped at the opportunity to help. "My hat’s off to Rikki,” said Gillespie. “It's a really big deal to try and go the days straight shooting pool. I think what makes it a little more important is a lot of people, they'll have something for charity. But Rikki's actually physically doing something he doesn't have to do it."

   The bar locked its doors from 4:00am-7:00 am each night, locking in him, his opponents and his witnesses. The allotment of 5 a minute break each hour was given. He had a nurse check his vitals and blood sugar.

     Cunningham beat the old record time of 52 hours and two minutes. News14Carolina and News2wfmy covered the event.
