Rubik's Cube World Championship Won By Speedcubing Australian Teenager Feliks Zemdegs

This Teenager Just Solved A Rubik's Cube In Under Six Seconds

An Australian teenager has been named the Rubik's Cube world champion after solving one of the puzzle boxes in just 5.695 seconds at a competition in Sao Paulo.

Feliks Zemdegs, 19, flew to Brazil from his home in Melbourne to compete and was given the prestigious title after fending off opponents from across the globe, but missed out on the world record by 0.44 seconds.

A massive 423 people flocked to take part in the 2015 Rubik's Cube World Championship, which includes 18 different contests.

"The competition was really, really awesome, well-run. The venue was really nice, all the people were really nice," Zemdegs said.

"The win was also really nice as well. Because I won last time, I was less nervous this time because I had already won one so that helped a bit."

Feliks's feat is truly incredible, but we're more taken aback by this two-year-old girl:

Hong Yan Chan looks well on her way to being a future world champion, solving the puzzle cube in under 70 seconds while still in nappies.
