3x3 finals were really exciting, with Firstian getting a 6.58 s single on the first solve!

3x3 One-handed was won by Wong Chong Wen with an average time of 14.36s. He had an amazing 10.31 single on the second solve.

Besides that, we all cubed and practiced different events, including FMC, for which Wong Chong Wen is the Asian record holder. We even had a new cuber come who learned to solve her first ever cube.

New 4x4 World Record by Sebastian Weyer

On September 15, Sebastian Weyer broke the 4x4 world record single with the first ever sub-18 official 4x4 solve with a time of 17.42 seconds, exactly one second faster than Max Park's former 18.42 second world record. Sebastian improved his own record of 18.45, set at the German Nationals 2019. With this record, Sebastian will have broken the world record single 9 times in total, more than anyone besides Feliks Zemdegs, who has broken the record 12 times. The solve was recorded, and posted on Sebastian Weyer's official YouTube channel.

Sebastian set the record with the Yau method, which is unsuprising considering that almost all top cubers today use Yau. Here is the reconstruction.

The scramble itself wasn't too lucky. Although it did have no OLL parity. It ended with a nice pure PLL parity (though this did require Sebastian to excecute an OLLCP, since the standard algorithm leads to PLL + parity). However, Sebastian's fluidity and TPS during the solve was remarkable, and are arguable what made the solve. He excecuted the solve at 7.52 TPS, 0.07 TPS faster than his previous 18.25 second world record single. The solve took 131 moves, 5 moves less than the 18.25 single. With this solve, Sebastian managed to obtain a counting 19 in the average, though two counting 25s on the last two solves prevented the average from being a personal best. He finished the round with a 23.59 average, and would go on to win the competition.
