I knew it when I first watched his tutorials that Feliks would own the world at his next comp!

His sense for F2L lookahead and color neutral ability is unmatched.

Congratulations!!!!

Faz can you post the 8.33 single as well?

I'd like to add it to cubingchannel

EDIT: CAN YOU POST THE 4x4 WR AVERAGE AS WELL!?!?

WTF, I just noticed that you completely owned the world today.

Edit 2:

Ah, I see you're posting it tomorrow.

Well please post the 8.33 as well if you have it. :)

People expected a lot from you and you delivered even more..congratulations!

Just checked the results at WCA website (wow that's fast!) and wtf THREE sub-40s in the 4x4 with a counting 48! Just pure awesomeness...and you almost got 5x5 single WR as well! Dan needs to work harder, people are getting reaalllly close to his 5x5 times :p

Just legendary..I bet it'll even take at least a few months before another sub-10 average appears in comp (unless it's from you :p)

Now to quote Stefan Pochmann: Go blame your parents for the rest of your life for not letting you go to the recent WC :D

And not to forget the million dollar question: A-V or F-II? :D

EDIT: Just watched the vid, pretty sure that's an A-V :) And I was definitely expecting a much bigger reaction than a fist pump...heh

I decided to quit speed solving 3x3.
congratz to the new WR holder.
I think Feliks just proved that if you keep practicing and don't quit, you can achieve such things.
Actually, I don't think so. He has been cubing for only almost 2 years I believe, which is very, very short compared to most of the top speedcubers, and his rate of improvement is just insane. Sure, he practises like mad everyday but he's gotta have some real talent to be able to get this fast in this short amount of time. And talent is not something everyone has.

EDIT: or the key here might just be CN :D
