And their rough average times? I am interested since Jessica Fridrich came out with a popular method and is a female.

I am male btw :fp.
I wonder... was a woman the person who developed Fridrich method?
Well, Shes a woman now...
Ya she probably developed the method as a GIRL :eek:.
Well err... no
It's actually quite true. At 17, Jessica Fridrich used her system to compete in the 1982 World Championships (Lars Petrus was there) and win the Czech Championships.
Enough with the mystery. Let me make it clear:

But I really don't understand the "fastest women" obsession. Speedcubing is a sport where age, gender, physical appearance and many other factors are basically unimportant.

It would be much more interesting to find out other things besides gender:
Could somebody provide me with a list of the fastest people that use a
-Non-standard colorscheme
-Non-Fridrich based method

Unless I am mistaken Rowe Hessler is color neutral, which I think is noteworthy considering he's so fast. I'm sure this has been brought up before, but it's one that came to mind easily for me.

Of the top 100 for 3x3 average:

Tomasz Zolnowski: f2l on left
Mats Valk: blue cross
Rowe: Colour Neutral
Timothy Sun: Purple instead of Orange
Feliks: Colour Neutral
(John Tamanas: Green cross I think?)
Robert Yau: Colour Neutral
Justin Adsuara: MGLS
Lucas Garron: " "

Is it Ravi Fernando who uses Roux?
I don't consider the Japanese Colour Scheme to be non-standard (plus there's loads of them there who use it :p)

Other people I know of who use weird colour schemes: Sarah Strong (yellow and orange swapped, then orange swapped with purple), Joshua Li (like Tim Sun).
Fastest people with other methods: Johannes Laire (Petrus), Mateusz Kurek (ZZ), Francois (fastest guy with CF?). This is just from my head though, I haven't checked anything.

Again Wrong!

Fridrich did not use the Fridrich system in 1982. Only parts of it
It was developed after the WC1982.

But I was using Fridrich for F2L already at WC1982! In the Netherlands it was already known as the Dockhorn-Treep system (Anneke Treep was a girl!) and the F2L-part of it was developed by ducthmen Renee Schoof.

At WC1982 Fridrich propably learned some tricks from me.
