Rubik’s cube World Championship Live from Las Vegas

In only a few hours the Rubik’s Cube World Championship will kick off in Las Vegas! This is the first time the Rubik’s Cube World Championship returns to America since 2005, where more than 570 speedcubers from 39 countries will attempt to become the fastest cuber on the planet in the Sin City. This year once again, you can tune in to watch the tournament LIVE from the comfort of your home and cheer for our Canadian Rubik’s Cube team.

Can anyone beat Mats Valk’s shocking 5:55 second world record?

The race will start today, July 26 and will run until Sunday, July 28. The 2011 World Cahmpion, Michal Pleskowicz from Poland will be there to defend his title. He stole the crown two years ago with completing the 3×3 Rubik’s cube in 8.65 seconds in Bangkok. All eyes, however, are on the 17-year-old Mats Valk from Holland who beat Australian Feliks Zemdeg’s unbelievable 5.66 second time this year at the Zonhoven Open.  Of course, Feliks will be there too, so this year’s World Cup promises tremendous excitement for racers and spectators as well.
