It appears that at a recent competition Erik Akkersdijk also got a 6.77 second solve. Joint first!

Holy crap. This weekend alone the world record has been broken four times, and three of them have been sub seven. Rowe Hessler managed to get a 6.94 seconds solve.

This is incredible. Never before has 7 seconds been broken in competition before, and 3 in the same day. I can't seem to find any confirmation of Erik Akkersdijc's 6.77 second solve. Can anyone post a link to anything?

Too bad the time zone of USA is later than that of Australia, otherwise Rowe would have the WR for a few hours.

I think it would be terrible to think you got the record but then realize that someone already broke the record right before you.
