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!
My first sub-2:10 in 7×7. It’s a new state record, and since I got this result at the 2023 Washington Championship, I’ve successfully defended my 7×7 state champion title!
