I know this Indian gal named Sonya who used to solve it in under 30 seconds, back during the first cube craze. She competed in a tournament in the UK, but unfortunately she stopped cubing and doesn't remember much about that Time.

My friend's girlfriend can solve in less than a minute. I taught my girlfriend and my babysitter, and they're both under 2 min now. My girlfriend sure surprised me at the NorCal tournament 2 saturday's ago with a blazing 71 sec solve :wink:

She's only been solving for a few months but she had the advantage of learning from my experience. I made her learn CFOP with the cross down.

Hi Jin,

Hi
I have finally managed to get an average time of 65 seconds, with a few sub-minute times :) I haven't had much time to practice as it is really the kind of thing you need to devote at least a few hours to if you want to make a significant improvement (though that is just my opinion).
Anyway, I should be able to do some consistant sub-60s in time to impress the hoards of relatives who inexorably show up at Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas (yes, we celebrate all three. I'm not Jewish or American, but I have family who are. Any excuse for a shindig!)

Jasmine and Jessica are the most well-known ones. There is one female named Casey-something who averaged sub-30 at Dallas. I have also heard the name Shelly Chang but not in a while.

If you look on speedcubing.com you'll see someone named Christine Lai with a best of 17!

A girl I had a crush on a few years ago could solve in 45s which is faster than my current avg. But, she married another... :oops:

LOL! Not to my knowledge. Must be that "opposites attract" thing....

Not sure what it is, but I generally find women who can do something better than I can to be pretty hot. The first such gal was back in the 5th grade, where she was the only one doing better than me in a series of math quizzes. Ahhh, Lisa. It's been a lot of years.
