As you’ll probably know by now, me and another couple of bloggers have been taking part in the ‘Cuber In Training’ programme. During the programme we all learnt how to complete the cube, and then battled to see who was the fastest cuber.
All our blocky fun was done in the run-up to the 2013 UK Rubik’s Championships, which saw cubers from around the world descend on the UK to tackle the 13 different events. Over 100 speed cubers took part in the events, and here are the results.
- Winner of the 3×3 and UK Rubik’s Cube Champion is Thom Barlow, 25 from Manchester with an average solve time of 10.64 seconds!
- Winner of the 3×3 Blindfolded is Matthew Sheerin, 22 from Airdire, Scotland with an average solve time of 57.99 seconds!
- Winner of the 3×3 One-Handed is Robert Yau, 21 from Gulidford, Surrey with an average solve time of 16.24 seconds!
- Winner of the 2×2 Rubik’s Cube speed solve is Sameer Mahmood from Catford, London with an average solve time of 2.70 seconds!
Well done to all the winners, I simply cannot believe those amazing times they achieved. Puts my efforts to shame for sure.
