Solving a Rubik's cube is pretty damn hard for the average person, but not for the new world record holder Collin Burns. 

Over the weekend, Burns took part in a Rubik's Cube competition at Central Bucks West High School in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, where he managed to complete the puzzle in a mere 5.25 seconds, breaking the previous best of 5.55 set by Dutchman Mats Valk.

The record has yet to be officially recognised, but it seems that the World Cube Association don't foresee that being a problem. Speaking to Mashable, they said that it "has been performed in an official competition, with all the rules being followed, even the scramble has been checked for its correctness", so they simply need to update the record books to show Burns' achievement.
