All of my accomplishments surrounding the 7×7 Rubik’s Cube!
I solve the 7×7 Cube three times. My first two solves were 2:52.18 and 2:54.67, respectively, so my final solve needed to be faster than a 3:13.15 in order to get a sub-3 minute mean. I was nervous, so I ended up getting a 3:12.64, but fortunately, I ended up with a 2:59.83 mean, which was just barely below 3 minutes!
I solve the 7×7 Cube three times in order to obtain a mean of 2:56.46. Despite one of the times being almost fifteen seconds slower than the mean itself, I was relieved to have finally broken my personal best after four months!
At Nationals, during the 7×7 event, I achieved a personal best single of 2:36.50! Considering all of my jet-lag and lack of practice, this was a very unexpected result.
During a usual Sunday practice session, I managed to break some personal records in the 7×7 cube. I’ve been practicing 7×7 for the next Cubing at Home competition!
At a recent competition in Provo, Utah, I got a new personal record for 7×7! This is my first official sub-2:30!
With this result, I was finally able to beat my previous PR mean (2:39.04) from nearly three years ago!
This mean, accomplished at the 2022 Norwegian Championship, beat my previous record by almost 6 seconds!
This result is so amazing for me that not only is it my new competition record, but also my all-time record (in other words, I’ve never done better even in practice)! This is also my first WA state record in 7×7!
Some new personal bests for 7×7 I got while practicing for an upcoming competition.
New personal records in 7×7 for single and average. The 2:18.64 solve is my first sub-2:20 in competition!
A new state record for 7×7 solve. This places me 45th in the world currently.
This result places me 9th nationally, which is the highest I’ve ever been ranked for the 7×7 cube!
New personal records for 7×7. The 2:17.82 mean is a seven second drop from my previous record, bringing me up from 57th in the world and 14th in the USA to 24th in the world and 6th in the USA!
