Rubik’s Cube champion Jack O’Mahony, 14, recently showed off his skills at the Australian National Rubik’s Cube Competition in Sydney, winning first place for the fastest time solving the Square-1 Cube.
Jack solved the Square-1 Cube in 19 seconds and also came seventh in solving the 3x3 Rubik’s Cube.
The Square-1 Cube adds a higher level of difficulty compared to the regular 3x3 Rubik’s Cube puzzle, as it can change shape when it is twisted.
Jack said he had fun attending the Rubik’s Cube competition, where about 100 other Rubik’s Cube enthusiasts competed at the Australian Museum.
‘‘It was good,’’ he said.
‘‘I got a certificate and a medal.’’
This was the fourth time Jack had been to the Australian National Rubik’s Cube Competition and said he enjoyed solving both cubes.
‘‘They’re different,’’ he said.
‘‘No two solves are the same, because there are so many combinations they are always different.’’
Jack said anyone could attend the Australian National Rubik’s Cube Competition if they could solve a Rubik’s Cube in under 10 minutes.
‘‘That’s not too hard,’’ he said.
‘‘My best average for the competition was 12.14 seconds.’’
Jack said he did not practice much in the lead up to the competition, but in the past he would put an hour a day into solving a cube.
Although Jack enjoys impressing people with his quick ability to solve the Rubik’s Cube, his goal is to get his average speed down to 10 seconds.
