Black Stars held the internet record Ghanasoccernet can exclusively reveal that the newly-elected president of the United States Barak Obama has broken the two-year internet record held by the Ghana national team.


The Black Stars held the record for the highest number of website visitors per minute after their sterling performance at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.


Ghana set the record immediately after beating the United States 2-1 to qualify for the second phase of the tournament.


Akamai's Net Usage Index for News recorded the highest number of website visitors per minute in history, placing Barack Obama's historic win at the top at the chart.


The Black Stars record was 7,283,584 visitors per minute, immediately after the 2006 World Cup game on 22 June 2006.


But Obama crushed Ghana's record by a whopping 1,288,458 hits immediately he was declared the winner of the US elections.


With 8,572,042 per minute as of 04:00 GMT on Wednesday, Obama's moment became the highest number of website visitors per minute.


Even though the Black Stars record has been shattered, the Ghana players would be proud that they held the record for over two years.
