Crazy Speed Cubing Records!

So speed cubing is Akkersdijk a hobby that some people take very seriously. Feliks Zemdegs, Haris Chan, Erik Akkersdijk are just a few names I know off the top of my head. All three of them can solve a Rubik's Cube in under ten seconds. In face, the official world record is held by Erik, at 7.08!!!!!!!! The fastest someone has been able to solve blindfolded is just over thirty seconds! These guys have put a lot of practice into this, and they deserve some recognition. Check out this link for some interesting Rubik's Cube world records and other cool stuff. http://www.worldcubeassociation.org/index.php

My fastest solves are no where near as fast as Erik Akkersdijk's, at 16.08, but there's always room for improvement.

Here are some links to fast solves caught on video!
