Not only does Australian teen Feliks Zemdegs, 19, have some of the fastest fingers in the world, he also has one of the fastest minds. That's because for the second year in a row, the youngster has won the world title at the Rubik's Cube World Championship.
Zemdegs completed the puzzle in 5.69 seconds, beating out Mats Valk of the Netherlands, who finished in 7.40 seconds and Jakub Kipa, from Poland, who solved it in 7.95, according to the Daily Mail. He was short of the world record by just .44 seconds.
Also known as "speedcubing," the Melbourne native said he was less nervous this time around because he had already won the event.
The Daily Mail reported that during the lead-up to the championships, Zemdegs spent a month practicing almost every day, even up to six hours at a time.
"Even the fastest guys in the world only practice because it's fun, or alternatively, they enjoy being really competitive and the corresponding amount of practice that is required to do so," Zemdegs said. "Cubing should never be a chore, and I think that forcing yourself to practice isn't a good mindset."
