    Yu Nakajima won the Kashiwa Open 2008 with an average of 11.75 seconds. Syuhei Omura finished second (13.34) and Yumu Tabuchi finished third (13.51).
    World records: Yu Nakajima Rubik's Cube 8.72 (single) 11.28 (average).
    Asian records: Mitsuki Gunji Clock 9.06 (single).


    If you take a closer look, Yu got 8.72 TWICE!!! How do you pull that off :eek:

    Great job though.

    That's a way to go sub-10 in comp!
    (And I thought it was cool to hold three simultaneous NR results for 3x3x3 speed... :p )

    I so wanna reconstruct those 2 solves now...

    Yu's also getting insane at BLD. Too bad I squandered my chances at a better ER... :(

    Yumu and Mitsuki are also fast. Maybe we should hold a 3x3x3 only contest in the USA. :p

    Awesome job Yu!
    Three 11.xx avgs in that comp. That's insane.

    The choice of events is very funny:

    3x3, BLD and... ... ... Clock

    Holy crap, two 8.72. That's nuts. Too bad they weren't in the same round though, could've been sub-11 then :)

    Also congratulations to all of the sub-11 guys (wow!), two 1:14 BLD solves (CRAZY! congrats guys!), and Gunji's clock record :)

    It was inevitable, I knew it was going to happen. He's been getting a few 8s every average. Since there's 3 rounds, so 15 solves, at least one should be sub 10, and 8s. If there were only 2 rounds, man he's screwed lol

    Congrats again Nakajima! It sure will be hard to beat...unless I get LL skip :p
