WCA Board Member
Gilles was a member of the WCA board from October 2004 until November 1 2008, when he retired due to lack of time. During his tenure, he was responsible for organizing several WCA competitions, and also acted as WCA delegate several times. He will still be available as a technical adviser for the WCA if needed.
Inventor of Roux method
Gilles invented his own method for solving the 3x3x3 cube, and found that despite using a small number of memorized algorithms it was quite efficient and fast. There is a tutorial for this method on Gilles's personal website. It is interesting to note that Gilles prefers not to call this method 'Roux', but just refers to it as the method he uses.
In competition, Gilles has achieved a single solve of 10.06 seconds and an average of 5 of 14.48 seconds, and a Fewest Moves result of 31 moves, all with his own method.
Gilles won the Fewest Moves event (with a result of 31 moves) at the European Rubik's Cube Competition 2006, making him the 2006 European champion for fewest moves.
