Max Park shatters Rubik’s Cube World Record with 3.13-second solve

CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES — World-renowned speedcuber Max Park has once again demonstrated his extraordinary prowess, setting a new world record in the 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube solve at the Pride in Long Beach 2023 event held on June 11.

Park, a 21-year-old speedcuber and esteemed member of the Guinness World Records Hall of Fame, achieved an astonishing time of 3.13 seconds, a feat that has not only shattered the previous world record set by China’s Du Yusheng in 2018 by 0.34 seconds but has further established his supremacy in the world of speedcubing.

Park’s talent, however, is not confined to the 3x3x3 cube. He is a multi-record holder, holding the single-solve and average-solve world records for a range of cube sizes, including the 4x4x4, 5x5x5, 6x6x6, and 7x7x7 cubes. His skills were previously recognized when he held the 3x3x3 average record with Poland’s Tymon Kolasinski, although this was recently surpassed by 9-year-old prodigy Wang Yiheng from China.

The journey to world record stardom was not always easy for Park, who was diagnosed with autism. His parents, Schawn and Miki Park, shared that Max once struggled with simple tasks like opening water bottles. Yet, his interest in solving Rubik’s Cubes surfaced, which they described as “a good therapy” for him.

Park’s most recent achievement is another testament to his tenacity, dedication, and an unwavering passion for speedcubing, leaving spectators around the world in awe of his remarkable talents.
