14-year-old Walter Duff from Chisasibi can solve a Rubik's Cube in a matter of seconds
Walter Duff is walking away from the Canadian Speedcubing Championship with two podium wins. Speedcubing, or cubing, is when people try to solve a Rubik's cube and other similar twist puzzles as fast as possible. Up until last month, Duff held the Canadian record in the Skewb event. A Skewb is a six-sided, 3D combination puzzle in the style of a Rubik's cube. Unfortunately, he was unable to regain his national title at the championship. Duff's former record for solving a Skewb was 1.83 seconds. It now stands at 1.4 seconds. Walter Duff told Quebec AM's Marika Wheeler how his passion for puzzles started.
