On Friday, August 1, Liberty Science Center Speedcuber-in-Residence, Anthony Brooks, of Texas, achieved a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title for the most Rubik’s Cubes solved underwater in one breath, by completing five in one minute and eighteen seconds, the last of which he finished solving one-handed.
The title was previously held by David Calvo of Spain who solved four on January 16, 2009. An adjudicator from GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS witnessed and verified Anthony’s attempt and hundreds of LSC guests cheered him on outside at our Wildlife Challenge exhibition. Congratulations, Anthony!
The GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS attempt was a highlight of the three-day US Rubik’s Cube National Championships, held at LSC on August 1-3. Over 500+ cubers from around the world participated in solving competitions including one-handed and blindfolded solves.
