Fun fact: Faz hasn't held this record since 2011. Congratulations!
*2012, or early 2013

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

Rob did longest time to get another CR/WR recently in the stats thread, the answer might be there.

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!
