At age 16, Max Park has become a living legend, holding nine Rubik’s Cube world records. Among his records is the fastest average time to solve a Rubik’s Cube one-handed -- which he did in 9.42 seconds.
This achievement -- along with all the others -- are especially amazing considering Max was diagnosed with autism as a child.
His parents say they noticed Max’s motor skills improve after picking up a Rubik’s Cube that was lying around the house.
Max fell in love with the toy and never put it down, practicing all the time.
When he entered competitions at age 10, his parents realized the events were great places for him to socialize. And then, they realized he was beating out graduates of MIT.
Everyone in Max’s life is happy that he’s going to be in next year’s Guinness Book of World Records for nine different Rubik’s Cube events.
But, they’re also happy to see him thrive alongside his peers, doing what brings him the most joy.
