During the Rubik Cube World Championship Finals, a teenager took the win for the second year running according to The Telegraph.

19-year-old Feliks Zemdegs, from Australia, defended his title by solving the puzzle in 5.695 seconds at the contest in São Paulo, Brazil.

There are a total of 17 different Rubik's Cube competitions at the biennial event and players are timed to see who can complete the puzzle the fastest.

Mr Zemdegs narrowly missed the world record of 5.25 seconds held by American Collin Burns.

For reference, here's Burns setting that world record in April of this year.

Zemdegs actually used to hold the world record and this better quality video shows that accomplishment. It really gives a great close up on how fast these fingers need to solve da cube (which is what I assume they call the Rubik's cube).
