danielr is an english speedrunner who recently blitzed the leaderboards. He submitted some scores on late 2011, however wasn't actually noticed. As of September 2012, he owns 90 Speedrun 0ths.
He came from nowhere on Summer 2012 again submitting a bunch of scores, and quickly attaining 90 SR 0ths by September. By this time, he was a mysterious player. His runs were impressive, an the fact that he was a new player with no contact with the community made some people suspect from his legitimacy, or that he was maybe an experienced player using a second account.
However, he then joined the forums on 10th September. After this, he was also told to join IRC. He proved to be a real legit player, with a big deal of skill, precision and dedication.
