Chinese Teen Breaks Two New Rubik’s Cube Guinness World Records on a Single Day
A Rubik’s Cube boy wonder from Xiamen, Fujian province, China recently broke two Guinness World Records consecutively in a single day.
In the first clip, 13-year-old Jianyu Que solved three puzzles simultaneously using both his hands and feet. He was able to start a new record of 1 minute and 36.39 seconds, according to Guinness World Records.
Que then broke the record for “Fastest time to solve a Rubik’s cube upside down.” He managed to achieve a time of 15.84 seconds, 1.6 seconds shorter than the previous record holder.
Que has been playing and solving the puzzle cube since he was 6.
“When I was younger, I could hardly understand what [having a] dream really meant. It is Rubik’s cubes that have made my dream more concrete, and I believe that I have the power to strive for better results in the future,” the teen told Guinness.
“For beginners, it may look much difficult to achieve these records. At first, I solved the cube’s by using the formulas, after million times of practice I was familiar with all the logic of the formulas and then I upgrade them to my own way,” Que added.
He currently holds a total of four Guinness World Records. Earlier this year, he broke the fastest time to solve three Rubik’s Cubes while juggling in just 5 minutes and 6.61 seconds.
Que is also the holder of the fastest time to solve a Rubik’s Cube (3x3x3) by a team of two records with a finishing time of 25.63 seconds. Both of these record-breaking attempts were set on the iDream of China TV show.
“Guinness World Records is a fair platform for challengers from all over the world. Once you set up your mind and you can accomplish anything,” Que said.
