I had a feeling he would get it after his first 2 results, congrats Marcel!
can't wait to see the solutions

first person to hold single and mean WR in 4 years
edit: and 4 years ago means weren't recognized, forgot about that

Thanks! Here are my solutions.

Scramble #1: R' U' F U2 R2 U2 B2 R2 F2 L' U2 R2 U2 R' D L' D' U2 F U2 L' D2 R' U' F
Premove B' (1/1)
U R2 F L' D L % D' R (8/9) - 2x2x3
D' L' F' L F' D' F' (7/16) - F2L-1 + EO
D F D F' (4/20) - L3C
% = L D' R' D L' D' R D (8-4/24)
Solution: U R2 F L' D L2 D' R' D L' D' R2 D' L' F' L F' D' F' D F D F' B' (24 Moves)

Scramble #2: R' U' F D2 R2 D2 B2 L2 B L2 B U2 F' L U' B U B L2 D U2 B U' R' U' F
F' (1/1) - 2 CE-Pairs
switch
F' L' B (3/4) - 1x2x2
F' U F' D2 F' U2 (6/10) - 2x2x3
switch
B' D' B2 D2 B (5/15) - 3C3E
skeleton: F' B' D' B2 D2 B U2 F D2 F U' $F B' L F$ = U' B U B' F R' B' & R B F' (10-5/20) - Edges
& = B' L B R B' L' B R' (8-3/25) - Corners
Solution: F' B' D' B2 D2 B U2 F D2 F U2 B U B' F R' B2 L B R B' L' B L F (25 Moves)

Scramble #3: R' U' F U' L2 D B2 L2 D' B2 D2 F' U' B2 R2 D2 U' R' D' F' D F U R' U' F
D B2 L (3/3) - EO
R2 B' F' D (4/7) - 2x2x2
B' U' B U' B R2 (6/13) - F2L-2 + 2 Free Pairs
D § B' U B2 U' D' B (7/20) - L3C
§ = D B' U' B D' B' U B (8-4/24)
Solution: D B2 L R2 B' F' D B' U' B U' B R2 D2 B' U' B D' B' U2 B2 U' D' B (24 Moves)

The second scramble was indeed the hardest to get a good result. On the first and third scramble I found so many different skeletons that I had to check, but I achieved the best results with just "standard" L3C skeletons... Easy but efficient!

here's a 23 for the first scramble:

R' U' F U2 R2 U2 B2 R2 F2 L' U2 R2 U2 R' D L' D' U2 F U2 L' D2 R' U' F

U R2 F R (B) // 2x2x2
(F D' L' D F L) // F2L - 1
D F D2 F' // F2L
R D R F' R' F D' R' // LL

Final solution: U R2 F R D F D2 F' R D R F' R' F D' R' L' F' D' L D F' B'

Every technique you need can be learnt by reading this. After that, just like everything else, you'll improve with lots of practice.

Very nice consistency! How many is "many skeletons"?

Congrats Marcel!
Nice to find a decent solution for the 2nd scramble, despite it seems a hard scramble judging from other competitors' results.

Thanks again to everyone!

Very nice consistency! How many is "many skeletons"?
On the 1st scramble I checked not just "many" skeletons, but skeletons that require more insertions and more time to be close to optimal. I tried 3C3E in 14 that resulted in 28 Moves. I also took a look on 3C5E (10 Moves). IF has found a 23 on this skeleton with 15 Moves cancellation. I didn't get through it. The attempt ended up with a lot of stickers on my "insertion-cube"
On the third scramble I found many different L3C skeletons (more than 20 Moves) and a 2C2E in 17. But in time pressure I just checked the L3C in 20 moves, that resulted in the 24 move solution.
The 3C3E skeleton on the second scramble was the only promising that I had found. For me the 2x2x3 Block was also the only promising start. Thankfully the Insertions were nice...
