Hello,

On Saturday at the Vancouver Summer 2012, Kris De Asis set a new world record solving the 5x5x5 in 52.65 seconds.

Here's the link to the video of this fantastic achievement:

Congratulations Kris!

Edit: The previous record of 54.86 seconds was set by Yu Nakajima at the Matsudo Spring 2012. Kris beat this record by 2.21 seconds. A year ago at the Vancouver Summer 2011, Kris had a time of 1:02:22, so he beat this time by 10.43 seconds.

Good point! I added that information and one more interesting tidbit in my initial post. Thanks.

That must have been a very short period of time regarding that the first official 3x3x3 world record was 23 seconds in 1982...

Kris was at the Las Vegas Nationals, and I swear it sounded like my name "Chris DeAngelis" when they were on the speakers. But wow on the achievement!
