I was thrilled to read that the world record for completing the cube has gone up. According to todays Sunday Express newspaper it now stands at 16.5 seconds. Hopefully it will go up to 40 seconds so I'll have a chance to beat it.

Scroll down to see the 'official' record listed here.

"The World RUBIK Cube championship was held in Budapest on June 5, 1982. Nineteen National Champions took part. Minh Thai, the US Champion, won by solving the Cube in of 22.95 seconds. The world record, in competitive conditions, grew progressively lower and now stands at 16.5 seconds."
