World Dart Record Set by Manitoba Player Cory Tkach
According to the Guinness Book of World Records the world record for bulls scored by one player in one minute is 7. Rory Orvis managed to throw a total of 16 bulls in one minute at the 2012 Manitoba Open. However, in July 2012, a British dart player broke the record by throwing 21 bulls in one minute. Then Cory Tkach broke that record at the 2012 Lac du Bonnet Open by throwing 23 bulls in one minute!! It's an impressive record that will probably stand for a while.


World Dart Record By Two Manitoba Players
Most Bullseyes by Two Dart Players in Two Minutes
According to the 2006 Guinness Book of World Records the world record for bulls scored by two players in two minutes is 21. Stan Milosevic and Larry Caruk (both MDAI members), in 2010, managed to break the record by throwing 22 bulls in two minutes. Then at the 2011 Winnipeg Open Rory Orvis and Edward Kapaw-an (both MDAI members) broke the record by throwing 25 bulls. Then a few days later two darts players from Hull, Quebec - Christopher Case and Nick Raizenne - smashed the record with 38 bulls. That record stood for a couple of months until Edward and Rory, at the 2012 Memorial, did it again and reclaimed the record with an astonishing 40 bullseyes. But the two Quebec players came back in May 2012 with a record of 41 bullseyes. Then, just a couple of weeks later Cory Tkach and Rory Orvis broke the record again with an astonishing 43 bulls. See the video below.
