Watch: Teen sets new World Record solving Rubik’s Cube… while juggling!

A boy from China has decided to make the challenge himself by going for the Fastest time to solve three Rubik’s cubes whilst juggling.


While the event took place late last year, the official video was released by Guinness World Records on the 27th of May. Que Jianyu, 13, from Fujian in China, trained for two years before attempting the record.

Que was given 15 seconds to examine the three cubes. During the attempt he continuously threw the three cubes in the air, quickly turning his fingers to solve the puzzles as they landed in his hands before launching them into the air again.

At one very tense moment, he knocked two of the cubes into each other. It is unclear if it was an accident or a calculated move to adjust the cube mid-air.

His fingers were moving so fast that it was almost too fast for the eye to see!

The teenager managed to achieve this very challenging record in 5 minutes 6.61 seconds to achieve a new Guinness World Records title.

“Que Jianyu has a great gift and talent on Rubik’s cube, which requires a lot of practice. This is very difficult for a child. Friends in the circle all call him a ‘little child prodigy’,” Ye Jiaxi, president of the Xiamen Magic Association.

The record has also been broken for the ‘Fastest time to solve a Rubik’s cube’ with a time of 4.22 seconds set during a competition in Melbourne, Australia, on 6 May 2018. The record was broken by Felix Zemdegs, 22.
