Liberty graduate sets new marks for Rubik’s Cube
The Riviera Convention Center is filled with excited chatter, but Kevin Hays remains focused, completely still except for his hands, which are fervently manipulating a 7-by-7 Rubik’s Cube.
He sits next to a large digital clock, which is timing his race to solve the cube down to a hundredth of a second, but he blocks out everything except the cube. However, when he completes the solve, he immediately drops his composure and jumps from his chair, yelling, “Yes!” with his hands in the air, as friends and other onlookers clap and cheer for him.
Hays has just set a world record.
