Official results are not available yet, but i believe that the competition is from Zonhoven Open 2013. Congratulations Mats. Before this solve he had the 6th fastest single solve and the 2nd fastest average. Feliks Zemdegs almost 1.5 year old record for single solve is then broken.
The single world record time for 2×2 has been 0.96 seconds since Erik Akkersdijk did it in Geneva Open 2008. Since then two other cubers have accomplished the exact same time Rowe Hessler in US Nationals 2010 and Vincent Sheu at Berkeley Winter 2011. But now Christian Kaserer beat that long lasting record with a single time of 0.69 seconds at Trentin Open 2011.
Michał Pleskowicz finished as champion in the 2011 WC Rubik’s cube contest in Thailand with an average of 8.65. Rowe Hellser finished second with an average of 9.56. Third place (surprisingly) was assigned to Feliks Zemdegs with an average of 9.58. I think the pressure became to high on him.
The 3×3 one-handed final was won by Arifumi Fushimi with an average of 15.56

Top 10 in 3×3 second round had sub 10 average. Only Feliks managed sub 9. Only 8 managed sub 10 in semi final. Feliks was the only one with sub 8, no other managed even sub 9. Is the final round already pre-determined?
In 5×5 semi final both Feliks Zemdegs and Dan Cohen managed to get the two best single times of 59.53 sec, unbelievable! The 5×5 final was won by Feliks with a sub 60 avg of 59.94!
