My biggest achievement is connected with BLD. On Świerklany Open in July I've done my first successful solve 6:xx. 2 months later on Poznań Open I've done 1:48. Now I've done couple of sub60 solves, my personal best is 53.xx

- sub60 BLD single
- sub10 444bld single
- 9/9 multi bld in 40 minutes and I know I can better but I don't have cubes :/
- 17.07 avg12 OH
- some sub10 normal 3x3x3 solves
-just today - 56.xx avg12 4x4x4. My second sub60 avg.

AND

I UNDERSTAND BH!!! It's the most important point for me ;)

My events this year:
2x2: ridiculously horrible
3x3: 2 sub9 averages(8.91, 8.27), and becoming consistently sub10(17 sub10 averages this year i think?)
4x4: 36.xx single, 42.xx average
5x5: finally beat my personal best average from 2008
OH: NAR average (14.91) and single (11.41)
BLD: got a few successes...
megaminx: improved my personal best from 4 minutes in 2007 to 58.59 at US nationals. My first seriously official megaminx solve, and my first megaminx NAR.

My biggest accomplishment of 2011 was placing second at World Championships. That was awesome. Thats all I can really think of for 2011. Although I had no WR's it was definitely my best year overall.

2012 goal: 2x2

Well, I could speak about going to 26 comps this year, breaking NRs in three different events, getting to two finals at Worlds or getting a sub-minute BLD single but all this is just crap. My biggest achievement is definitely winning two WF events, with the amazing averages of respectively 6:47 and 4:14 :p
