Speedcubing or speedsolving, sometimes shortened to just cubing, is a sport in which one tries to solve the Rubik's cube or other puzzles, typically either any type of twisty puzzle or, less frequently, a Rubik's Clock, as fast as possible. There is a wide range of variants to this such as Blindsolving, One-Handed solving or Feet solving. A person practicing this sport is called a speedcuber. The administrative body is the WCA.

While FMC or the Fewest Moves Challenge is not a contest of the fastest solve, it is still considered by many to be part of the speedcubing sport as it is officially regulated by the WCA (World Cube Association).
