Today (8th June 2013) Feliks Zemdegs broke the 4x4x4 single world record at the Shepparton Winter 2013 contest in Shepparton Australia with a time of 25.34s. This takes over 1 second off the previous world record held by Sebastian Weyer (26.44s in February).

Awesome. That kid is amazing! His ability to solve every size of cube thrown his way is incredible. He's world class in every size he competes in, at least he was. Glad to see he has another WR.

There is probably a video, but it's not up yet. He also got a 5.84 3x3 single (not quite wr) and he tied his former wr 2x2 average with 2.12.

The kid is the reason why so many people got into speedcubing.
Does anyone know which brand of cube he used?

It looks like the knockoff brand to me, slightly Florian modded. I asked in the thread on the speedsolving forum where he posted as well if it was. Hopefully he sees it and I can get it confirmed :)


Edit: got the reply. It is the knockoff indeed, non modded. Older version.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLOFohOPIWc 5.84 single. PLL skip. Could have been WR without the lockups at the beginning.
