Sam Sieracki Breaks Guinness World Record for Solving Rubik's Cube While Skydiving

Sam Sieracki, a 17-year-old from Western Australia, has set a new Guinness World Record by solving a Rubik's Cube in 28.25 seconds while skydiving from 14,000 feet over Jurien Bay. During the freefall, he was traveling at approximately 200 km/h. While Sam's record time on the ground for solving the cube is 6.5 seconds, the challenges of skydiving made the task more difficult. It took him five tries to surpass the previous record of 30.14 seconds set by Nitin Subramanian from the U.S. Sam combined his love for speed-cubing and skydiving to achieve this feat. He has been participating in speed-cubing competitions since 2017 and took up solo skydiving after turning 16. He has completed 80 jumps in two years. Encouraged by his family, especially his mother and girlfriend, Sam pursued the world record. While he doesn't have any major skydiving goals at the moment, he aims to continue enhancing his skills. Other related records include solving a rotating puzzle tetrahedron in freefall in 24.22 seconds by Chinmay Prabhu and solving a puzzle cube while dribbling a basketball in 14.35 seconds by Wang Yibo from China.
