WATCH: Teenager Solves Rubik’s Cube in 5.25 Secs, Beats World Record

I can’t even solve the Rubik’s Cube even if I had hours to do it but Collin Burns solved a 3x3x3 cube in just 5.25 seconds, breaking the current record of 5.55 seconds held by Mats Valk from Netherlands.

Burns is the champion of the Rubik’s Cube competition at Central Bucks West High School in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA.

According to Mashable, a WCA representative told them:

“Although this result has not been uploaded to the WCA database just yet, we can confirm that this is (or will be soon) the new official WCA world record for the 3x3x3 single solve category. To our best knowledge, it has been performed in an official competition, with all the rules being followed, even the scramble has been checked for its correctness.”
