I started at 19:08 (better known as 7:08 pm) and finished it around 18:08. My goal was of course to break the world record, but I wanted to solve 5000 cubes aswell. After hour 16 I had massive troubles with my arms and hands! It was by far the biggest pain of my life and I don't know how I finished, but I managed to do it somehow. Hour 15 was so sick, because after a break I tried to beat the world record for the most cubes in 1 hour, which I set on hour 2 and I failed by only 1 cube. But an hour after this I felt racking pains in my arms and fingers and I started to think about the sence of life and why I do crazy things like this.
At the end a BIG THANK to my team of TWO! cubers: David Kerkmann and Michael Gerlt, who managed to film the whole event, while never missing a beat at scrambling! It was an outstanding performance from their side.
OLL skips: 18
PLL skips: 67

Neitzel OLLs: 97
Record set on June 29-30
|2||4,786 cubes||Milán Baticz||NEW OFFICIAL WORLD RECORD!!!!|
Next time 5000+ ;)
Cubes/hour: 245 229 229 220 215 215 210 200 215 210 205 210 195 190 180 185 190 210 185 175 185 175 175 138.
Average: 18.05 seconds/cube.
Attempt started at 11:06am and finished the next day at 11:06am. I had 91 PLL skips and 47 OLL skips, no LL skip. I used Fridrich method all the time but the 200 solves when I started with a 2x2x2 block. My hands are OK, no problem with them. I have never practiced solving as many cubes as possible before except for the 1 hour solving event 2 days before the marathon (tried once). Thanks to: Nikolett Placsko, Oliver Perge, Robert Orkenyi, Mate Horvath, Attlia Homok, Eva Baticz, Zoltan Baticz (and there were other helpers, but I don't know their name) for helping me with scrambling my cubes and judging/counting.
Practise, practise, practise...
Record set on Nov 15 - Nov 16 2008.
|3||3,505 cubes||Balázs Bernát||I forgot to post this x)|
My only goal was to beat Andrew's record of 3500 solves and also to go through with it not giving up before the end (I knew that I won't be able to race guys like Matyi and Milán). My right wrist died at around midnight I had to keep a longer break (~20-30 mins). During the night my perception of the f2l was a lot better. at the end I barely could solve the cross at first try / My last solve was done blindfolded.
In 3505 cubes I had 13 OLL 29 PLL and 1 LL skip and around the same amount of forced OLL-PLL skips which we didn't count.
Marcell Zénó Törőcsik. Thanks everyone!
Norbert and András scrambled from the beginning to the end.
It was a great experience!
set on 15-16th of novembre 2008.
|4||3,500 cubes||Andrew Kang||This is my second attempt. I don't know why someone would do this twice after experiencing the pains of the first attempt. But I got the record so I guess it was worth it!|
I got 3500 cubes solved in 19 hours and 45 minutes. So I stopped solving with 4 hours remaining. I'm pretty sure I could of gotten over 4000 at least with the remaining 4 hours. But the pain in my arms was unbearable. I solved roughly 2400 in the first 12 hours and solved the remaining 1100 in the next 7. After the 12 hour mark my hands started to give up and the pain kicked in. The nose dive I experienced was pretty bad thats why I stopped at 3500.
I personally believe that 4800 cubes solved in 24 hours is possible with the proper training. I was solving roughly a little over 200 an hour for almost 13 hours.
I want to thank all these people that came to scramble and count for the event!
Tammy Liaw (she stayed through the whole event! Thanks Tammy such a big help! :) )
Jack Meisburg (provided his home for the event)
Andy Lei (We raced 1 on 1 for a while so that I could keep up my 200/hour quota around 10 hours into the marathon)
Sam Kang (brother)
I hope that no one beats this record anytime soon so that I won't have to do this event for a 3rd time. Not that I will haha.
Set on Jan 4- Jan 5 2008.
|5||3,390 cubes||Zbigniew Zborowski||Zbigniew Zborowski broke the official WCA cube marathon record, solving 3,390 Rubik's cubes in 24 hours. The old record was 3,141 cubes, set in February 2006 by Brent Morgan. A group of 6 Polish cubers (Lukasz Cialon 3355, Adam Wojtyla 2540, Zbigniew Zborowski 3390, Artur Justynski 2162, Adrian Banas 2481 and Tadeusz Tomala 2011) solved a total of 15,939 cubes in 24 hours.||20060624|

|7||3,165 cubes||John Godwin||Aside from some nerve damage in my hands and wrists, it was fun.|
I started at 7:00 PM, and, due to DST, ended at 6:00 PM.
Special thanks to:
and those I forgot the name of, but stayed through the night/came to visit.
|8||3,142 cubes||Andrew Kang||I did this in December of 2006. I reached 3142 on hour 21.5 and decided to stop there because I didn't feel like it. This attempt was an unofficial attempt. I don't know why, but I'm going to try again ASAP with a WCA official there and I'll get my personal goal of 3600+ next time!|
Don't have all the names of people that helped me out but. Thanks Joy for hosting the event and feeding us! Congratulations on getting accepted into WASH U! Thanks to all the members of the Chattahoochee Cube Club (www.hoochcube.com) and all the middle schoolers that came to help out as well. I hope to be able to do this (officially) some time in late 2007.
|9||3,141 cubes||Brent Morgan||3141 = 1000*(Pi). This was done at Caltech on February 18, 2006. Cube #2001 was done at 12 hours and 8 minutes. I could have kept up the pace if I truly wanted to, but I could work at my consistency. I thank Mark Polinkovsky, Mark Sullivan, Daniel Lo, Shelley Chang, Leyan Lo, Michael White, Michael Inadomi, Eileen Xie, Christopher Kreuger, Matthew Wallisa, Adam Zamora, and Tyson Mao for scrambling and helping out. Thanks to Chris Hunt for the timer, and all the speedcuber pals I have for motivation. I do see 4000 possible, and I'll be willing to do another attempt at this only if someone else is. I actually did 3141.5 cubes, following Pi by as many decimal places as possible. Now that I think about it, one of my first averages of 100 cubes, which started the category on www.speedcubing.com, was done on Pi day. Interesting.||20060218|
|10||2,713 cubes||Thomas Watiotienne and Cyrille Cornu||Well we did from Monday 9.00 am to Tuesday 9.00 am||20060828|

|16||1,337 cubes||Andrew Nelson||From 8am Saturday to 8am Sunday. I didn't time individual solves. I solved at an average of about 50 seconds, though. I had a clock and I started once a minute. Took a 2 minute break every hour, plus a five minute break every 2 hours to lubricate my cubes. My brother and my friend Justin scrambled. This was really fun. I think I can beat that. And yes, the 1337 was on purpose.||20060320|
|17||1,000 cubes||Zbigniew Zborowski||I and my nephew Slawomir Wolanin and my niece Iwona Wolanin (my scramblers) were making several "hour's sessions". This was my train for wc2003. During the whole day I have solved about 1000 cubes (maybe a little bit more :). zz||20030819|
|18||300 cubes||Alex Powell||Today I have 150. The 300 wasn't even close to a whole day either. One day I will beat you Jess if I ever get the time and help.|
|19||147 cubes||Richard Patterson||Jess looked so alone in the category.|
