2. Hi Tomoaki,
I was on the beach all day and now just heard this great news.

3. Congratulations!

4. Well done!

5. congratz. makes me want to try fmc.

6. Once the world record is under 20 moves, would all FMC scrambles have to have at least 1 solution that beats or ties the WR to make it fair?

Also, the longest standing WR is now square 1 single.

I'd say no, but that brings up an interesting point: eventually we may have a situation where it is mathematically impossible to beat the world record in some competitions.

Of course, this is arguably true for, say, 2x2 single as well... but FMC is an actual event.

How is 2x2x2 single not?

Agreed, but you must note that the distance for the most position of the cube (from the solved position) is 18 (http://www.cube20.org/) so the real problem will occur when the WR will be 18 (or less).
