All of my accomplishments surrounding the 5×5 Rubik’s Cube!
I solve the 5×5 Cube five times, resulting in an average result of 1:00.64. This result placed me second at the competition!
I solve the 5×5 Rubik’s Cube in 55.25 seconds. This solve was a rather pleasant surprise; I was not expecting this!
I solved the 5×5 in 52.72 seconds, shattering my previous personal record by almost three whole seconds!
At Nationals, I solve the 5×5 in 48.02 seconds! This broke my previous personal record by over four seconds!
I solve the 5×5 five times, and achieve an average time of 54.67 seconds. This broke my previous personal best by only about half a second, however I was sort of relieved to have finally broken the sub-55 barrier.
I achieved an average result of 51.05 seconds for the 5×5! This took place during a head-to-head match, and it let me win the Twisty Puzzle Cup, an online cubing competition similar to Cubing at Home!
A really nice 5×5 solve I got during a recent Twitch stream!
Superficially, this solve may not seem very extraordinary, but I was actually using an entirely unfamiliar method to solve the cube, known as Yau5. The cubing community is often torn between the various methods of solving the 5×5, and Yau5 is one of them!
At a recent competition in Coquitlam, British Columbia, I broke a new personal record 5×5 single with a time of 47.72! This beats my previous personal best (48.02) by three tenths of a second. I also used an entirely new method for this solve that I have never used at previous competitions!
At the Northeast Championship in Boston, I broke my 5×5 personal record average by over two seconds, and my single by over one second!
For an upcoming competition, I decided to practice some 5×5. I was able to break my personal best and catch it on camera! If I had gotten this solve in a competition, it would improve my world ranking from 46th to 16th.
A new personal record for 5×5 average! I’m getting closer and closer to breaking the sub-50 barrier!
I shattered my previous personal bests in 5×5! I improved both my average and my single time by over 3 seconds. This granted me a spot as 4th in the nation and my first time being 1st in Washington for 5×5!
