World Record Weekend 25/2-2012

Marcell Endrey set a new world record for solving the Rubik’s 3x3x3 blindfolded of 28.8 seconds at Zonhoven Open 2012. That’s 2 seconds faster than Yuhui Xu (30.58 sec) ranked second. I wrote a post about Marcell a couple of months ago here. He solved 19/19 cubes blindfolded at the World Championship 2011 in Thailand in 53 minutes and got a WR for that, however Zane Carney has beaten that with 23/25 cubes at the Melbourne Cube Day 2011 since then.

Feliks Zemdegs set a new world record average of 5 on the 5x5x5 of 57.94 seconds at Melbourne Summer 2012. That’s 1 second faster than Dan Cohen (57.44 sec) ranked second.

Individual times: 57.11   1:06.05   56.65   56.72   1:00.00

Now he currently holds the records for:

3x3x3 Single 5.66 sec
3x3x3 Average 7.64 sec
4x4x4 Average 34.82 sec
5x5x5 Single 56.22 sec
5x5x5 Average 57.94 sec
2x2x2 Average 2.12 sec
