Most people take hours, days, or even months to solve a Rubik’s Cube. But 21-year-old American Max Park recently solved one in just 3.13 seconds, setting a new world record.
Park achieved his record time in June during a Rubik’s Cube event in Long Beach, California, and was certified by Guinness World Records. Using a standard 3x3x3 cube, he smashed the previous record held by Yusheng Du, who solved the same cube in 3.47 seconds in 2018.
Park is one of the best-known speedcubers in the world and one of Rubik’s Cube’s official ambassadors. He is no stranger to world records, currently holding records for 4x4x4 cube, 5x5x5 cube, 6x6x6 cube, and 7x7x7 cube in single solve and average solve categories.
Solving Rubik’s Cube is more than just a hobby for Park. He is diagnosed with autism, and Rubik’s Cube provided him with “good therapy,” according to his parents, Schwan and Miki.
“There was a time when Max couldn’t even open water bottles, but he showed interest in solving Rubik’s Cubes,” Schwan and Miki shared with Guinness World Records official website.
Despite all his records and accomplishments, Max Park doesn’t intend to stop anytime soon. He intends to keep honing his skills and getting faster at solving Rubik’s Cube. And we are all here for it.
