Great job again!
Does someone knows of he has a coach? I think it would be hard to train so long to stand on the top without a coach or something. In every sport the athlete has a coach.

I don't think so, for two reasons on top of just the fact he's never mentioned it:
-There isn't really a lot a coach could do, aside from maybe keep him on a schedule if he's bad with that (I don't think he is). Even if he weren't on top, it's just not the sort of sport where you can learn a lot from a coach -Closest we've got is people reconstructing and critiquing solves.
-Cubing also doesn't really benefit from any sort of regimen or structured practice. In general it's best just to practice when you feel like it and try new things or different approaches as you please, 'cause it's not like physical endurance or anything like that where you benefit from pushing yourself, if you don't want to do it you won't try and you won't improve.

Well, he did only break it by 0.03 seconds. Still, though...
I can certainly understand why he broke Single by so little, though. Despite that Feliks has recently (yesterday, according to the UWR page), gotten the first Sub-41 solve (41.03 -> 40.98), the 5x5 WR Single still has the least time difference between it and its unofficial counterpart. Also, Feliks has really closed the gap between the 3x3 WR Average and the 3x3 UWR Average (his PB), as well as strengthened his lead between him and WR2 for both 5x5 Single and 7x7 Mean (Some of the Blind events have a greater difference, but they're not as competitive):

You shouldn't think so much. He just broke it because he had good solve on a new cube.

He has been continuously holding the 5x5 average WR since the 4th of Septermber of 2010. Approaching seven years now... I am curious to see if he can reach a decade. I think he will need to improve it further to reach the decade. Right now Seng Hyun Nahm, Max Park and possibly some others clearly have potential to do it. (Kevin Hays has been trying for too long without accomplishing it, so I don't think he is much of a menace anymore)
