Just saw this brief article about Calvin Anderson who plays for Rice:

There's a short video of him doing a BLD solve on that page. Can anybody tell what method he's using?

Linked on that page is this clip from a Houston TV news program:


Also linked on that page is this clip of Anthony Brooks solving a cube during the 100m dash Men's final at the Rio Olympics. I think Anthony should assume the starting position he used in the clip at his future comps. :)

He looked like he was just doing R' D' R D over and over, probably wasn't a real blind solve.
Here's another video of him:

I found another video of him the other day (can't recall where it is) and the solve was exactly the same. It seems like he just memorized some solution.
