With a dearly-devoted wife of nearly 4 years now, and a second baby on the way, Shawn Johnson of the Goldeneye rankings has defied every theory and law of speedrunning. Not only has Shawn blasted his way into the top 10 in points and time, but he’s now moved into a stellar position of 7th place and the 3rd-highest ranking American! The move into 7th puts him atop Goldeneye Multiplayer champion and legendary speedrunner Eddie Lovins!
Thank you Shawn for your dedication. It’s guys like you who create amazing story lines for us to comment on and share with the rest of the elite. A husband, father of 2, and full time employee is ranked behind only 6 people in the entire world. Think about that.
One final note is that The Elite has finally created a page of live streaming, created by David “DKK5” Kovaz, and Hugo “Cara” Van der Wolk! This page allows any speedrunner to play while simultaneously allowing us to watch everything they do… LIVE. It can be any level-specific world record attempt, or a full segment (Agent, Secret/Special, 00A/PA) speedrun. The stream will eventually be embedded permanently into the front page, but for now the link can be found here. Information about the page and how to participate for yourself can be found here.
