21 June 2023

At the Pride at Long Beach 2023 competition, American Max Park managed to solve the Rubik's Cube in 3.13 seconds. This became a new world record. The previous achievement belongs to a resident of China Yushen Du, who in 2018 solved the cube in 3.47 seconds.

Max Park is now 21 years old, and he has been fascinated with Rubik's Cubes almost since infancy. Then the doctors diagnosed him with autism and gave advice to parents on the choice of activities for the development of fine motor skills. In addition, Park's passion for building blocks brought him into a community of like-minded people, which helped develop his social and communication skills.

Park was previously known among Rubik's cube lovers, he is considered America's leading "speedcubist" - these are people who collect the cube for speed. In particular, the Park holds world records for assembling large cubes - 4x4, 5x5 and 6x6 and 7x7. It takes him some time to study the cube before assembling it, but then his fingers move so fast that an outsider can't keep up with them.
