Not sure if this is officially "General Sport" but it is sportingly VERY impressive!
An 18-year-old student from Georgia solved six Rubik’s Cubes under water in one breath on Friday, in a bid to set a new Guinness World Record. Vako Marchelashvili was submerged in a glass tank for just over one minute and 44 seconds as he flipped, turned and solved the cubes in front of a crowd at the Gino Paradise aqua park Tbilisi.
He said he had been preparing for the underwater challenge for six months, training several hours a day.
“I trained a lot planning to break a record - and to ensure my safety, because even a small mistake could be dangerous and life-altering,” Marchelashvili said afterwards.“I think my result will stay as a record for a long time. I hope to break many other records.”
After observing Marchelashvili’s attempt, the Georgian Records Federation issued a diploma confirming his result. They will send their evidence to the Guinness World Records headquarters for verification.
The current underwater record of five cubes was set by Anthony Brooks in New Jersey in the United States in August 2014, according to the Guinness World Record website.
I used to hate the kids at school who could solve the Rubik's cube. I never came close, no matter how much time I spent with the damn things.
I still can't do it - I always managed one side and the top 2 cubes of the other sides and that was it
yeah, I neither could do the damn thing...
Stickers off/ Stickers on
it beggars belief that these freaks of nature can complete it in 4 seconds. Unbelievable.
