A 21-year-old speedcuber from California has achieved something that has left some speedcubing fans in tears.
Max Park has solved the world-famous Rubik’s Cube in only 3.47 seconds.
According to the Guinness World Records, it’s the fastest time to solve a Rubik’s Cube ever recorded.
The previous record of 3.47 seconds was set by Yusheng Du from China in 2018.
Schwan Park, Max’s father told the Guinness book that everybody present at the Pride in Long Beach 2023 event was in shock when the record was broken.
“The atmosphere was electric. Everybody knew that he had broken the record, and I think partially everybody was in shock.”
He went on to say that the people in the audience were happy for Max.
“The cubing world has been nothing short of ecstatic. Everybody was really waiting to see who was going to break that record. When Max did it, everybody was very happy for him.”
Max is no stranger to the world of speedcubing. He rose to worldwide fame after he appeared in a 2020 Netflix documentary “The Speed Cubers”. He starred alongside his good friend and fellow champion Feliks Zemdegs.
