    This is the reconstruction of the World Record Rubik's Cube Single set by Feliks Zemdegs with a time of 4.73!
    Congrats to him!

    Scramble = U' L2 U B2 U' L2 D L' D' R' U F B' R' F2 D2 R D R'

    Reconstruction

    Inspection// y' z
    XCross// U' R F R' D
    F2L 1&2// U' L' U2 L2 U' L'
    F2L 3// U R' U R R' U R U R' U' R
    OLL// F R U' R' U' R U R' F'
    PLL// R U' R U R U R U' R' U' R2 U

    43HTM/4.737 = 9.077 TPS (Turns per second)

    This brings up an interesting point: what the longest time for a person to reclaim a lost world record?

    Maybe it was obvious to Feliks, but I think it's pretty awesome how he chose to do break up the obvious already made pair on the green cross to do a different x cross with a better continuation. Its also awesome how he didn't do the obvious 2nd pair first. I love it when fast solves are fast because the solver did something smart.

    A visual reconstruction of the solve. (Kinda aimed at intermediate cubers)
    I didn't really wanna make a new thread for this cos I thought there were too many already:

    Feels bad to be Mats, ahaha. But congratulations to Faz for claiming the title of WR single holder back finally! It was a shock to see this pop up so suddenly, but I'm not altogether surprised in the end - a well deserved result!
     
  17. holy **** that old WR only held for like a month. well deserved by feliks. GJ!
