It seems that everyone one and their mom want to be the record holder for solving the Rubik’s Cube, but alas, only those truly gifted can hold that distinction. As I’ve admitted before, the Cube and I aren’t exactly best friends (and will continue to be the case in the foreseeable future).
But this teenager clearly has spent more time than necessary with the block. He has set a new Rubik’s Cube record in a competition in Pennsylvania last weekend.
Can you guess how fast he was?
How about an amazing 5.25 seconds for a 3x3x3 cube. That’s probably faster than you can say, “This teenager set a new Rubik’s Cube record at a tournament is Pennsylvania!”
Collin Burns was participating in the final round of a competition at Central Bucks West High School in Doylestown, and though his result isn’t yet listed on the World Cube Association’s website, a WCA rep told Mashable yesterday, “We can confirm that this is (or will be soon) the new official WCA world record for the 3x3x3 single solve category.
So much for the previous world record of 5.55 seconds held by Mats Valk – also a teenager. Boy, kids today, huh?
