Ladies and gentlemen, it looks like we have a brand new world record for fastest time to solve a Rubik's cube.
Check it out (don't blink):
Yup, "speedcubing legend and Guinness World Records Hall of Famer" Max Park solved the 3x3x3 rotating puzzle cube in just 3.13 seconds, which is quite a feat, even for a guy with such a title.
Yeah man, that's fast!
Like, freaky fast!
The 21-year-old achieved an astonishing time of 3.13 seconds, shaving 0.34 seconds off the previous record, which was set by China's Yusheng Du in 2018…
Max holds a multitude of other speedcubing records – in fact, he holds nearly all of them.
He holds both the single solve and average solve world records for the 4x4x4 cube, 5x5x5 cube, 6x6x6 cube, and 7x7x7 cube.
He had also jointly held the 3x3x3 average record along with Tymon Kolasiński (Poland) with a time of 4.86 seconds, until it was broken on 12 March 2023 by 9-year-old Yiheng Wang (China), who achieved a time of 4.69 seconds.
As Guinness notes, it is only a matter of time before Max, or some other speedcubing legend breaks three seconds, so I'll see you back here when that happens.
Congrats on your latest record, Max.
Looking forward to the next one!
