People have said on fb that delegate confirmed it, and cubingchina doesnt seem immature enough to do this.
This also seems very organized if it is a prank lol, and maybe too hard to do, but that 14 fmc single fooled me lol

That's crazy!

Cool stat - proportionally speaking, this is the second biggest drop in the 3x3 single WR in the WCA era. Erik's 7.08 is first, at 81.2% of the previous record of 8.72. Though Yusheng Du's 3.47 isn't far behind at 82.2% of 4.22.

If it was such a lucky scramble, I'm surprised no one in the round got great results on the solve. Seems a bit suspicious.

Everything else adds up, however. Good cuber, correct scramble and all.
But I have this gut feeling that its too perfect to be real...
My exact thoughts.

It's only a 0.75 difference but we need the scramble, video, anything! Might be a scrambler scrambling the cubes wrong on purpose and led to a 3 again. No one else got good times on their 2nd solve, granted they might have been in different heats but Antoine Cantin was there and you'd think he would get a better time. This is just crazy. We should all be skeptical for the time being until there is an official announcement or whatever.

I'm quite skeptical about this. He got a 9.00 average. His best is a 6.03 in comp. This has to have been a mis scramble because no one else got good times on this scramble. They must have seen the XXCross too. I doubt this honestly.
I'll admit it is a bit strange he is the only one who got a good time on the scramble, but it seems plausible at least. If it wasn't an obvious XXcross, the lower-caliber competitors may not have recognized it. And the only other sub-8 cubers there were Antoine and Kaijun. Kaijun uses Roux. And Antoine only does orange-red cross so the XXcross may have been on a different colour.
