Its time to quit 3x3 and compete in other events. Events like bld, and some other events will probably be harder to learn it. I've been cubing for almost 3 years and I'm still only sub 11

Ruihang Xu is the new 3x3 WR holder with a 5.48 avg. This is a historic moment for Ruihang and Chinese cubing in general, which has seen huge strides just in the last year. We are officially in a new era of Chinese speedcubing, at least for 3x3.
How old is Ruihang? I can’t find it anywhere on the internet. Also why hasn’t the WCA page updated it still says Felix Zemdegs is the world record holder for 3x3 average.

He’s either 12 or 13, I’ve seen both. Also, it takes a while for them to input all of the results into the WCA website, so you’ll have to wait a few days. Usually, I think it’s the Tuesday or Wednesday after the comp.

What about clock? Yunhao Lou holds the WR for both single and average
Edit: Zhangshuai zhou is also 10th in 6x6 and 3rd in 7x7 so he would also be of contention
Another edit: There is also Baiqiang Dong in fewest moves, Lin Chen in 3x3 Blindfold Tairan Zhong in clock, Yunliang Zhang in Megaminx, Yulun Wu in Pyraminx, zongyang li in skewb, Kaijun Lin in 4x4 blind and 5x5 blind and Yucheng Chen in Multiblind, along with Du Yusheng, Ruihang Xu (Both really famous) and Ziyu Wu (that qwr said) are in the top 10 in that specific event.

Yusheng Du already holds WR and is sub 7, Baiqiang Dong has FMC AsR, Yunhao is already the king of clock. Yezhen Han(5.57 WR3 avg) is also in contention for 3x3 WR average. Ziyu has the potential to beat Juan Pablo Huanqui, Kaijun already has several bigbld WRs.

Lin Chen was a legendary big cube specialist back in 2011 and got the world's first 7x7 sub 3.

AFAIK Kaijun Lin (林恺俊) is a legend in the BLD community and Haiyan Zhuang (庄海燕) totally dominated 3BLD in 2009-2010 days, though he was suspended by the WCA for bad behavior. I recall seeing on a Phil Yu video I think that the Haiyan Memory, a modded Alpha V, was the first cube to be named after a speedcuber. Obviously nearly all speedcubes since 2010 have been Chinese cubes.
