Rubik’s Cube is one of the most fascinating and difficult puzzles. It takes a lot of effort, patience and strong will to solve the Rubik’s Cube completely by combining all the colors.
But it looks like a child’s play when a teenager from Colombia, South America, pushes one, not two, but three Rubik’s Cube. And according to Guinness World Records (GWR) he has set a world record.
Angel Alvarado completed three Rubik’s Cube puzzles in four minutes, 31.01 seconds while juggling each of them, GWR wrote on its website.

Alvarado achieved the feat on April 1 this year, the GWR website added. With that, the 19-year-old lost his previous record of 4 minutes 52.43 seconds, which he set in May last year.
Alvarado told GWR that it took him five months to be able to solve a Rubik’s Cube while juggling, and another four months to solve three at any speed.
“It makes a lot of sense to me because it would be Colombia’s first world record in both juggling and speed cubing, and it would be great to be the first person to achieve it,” he told GWR.
Alvarado trained for two years to set the record for the first time, using the Covid-19 quarantine period as an opportunity to hone his skills.
Before Alvarado, the other kids surprised the world by quickly solving the Rubik’s Cube puzzle.
In March, a boy from Chennai set a Guinness World Record by solving a Rubik’s Cube in just a few seconds while cycling.
A video posted on GWR’s Instagram handle shows Jayadarshan Venkatesan solving a Rubik’s Cube in just 14.32 seconds. Venkatesan was riding a bicycle when he solved the puzzle with both hands. He raised his hand at the end of the challenge.
