Where will it all end?
Fourteen-year-old Shotaro Makisumi of Arcadia, California, had the fastest average time -- 17.26 seconds -- in the U.S. Rubik's Cube Championship held in Pasadea, California, in July. He was ruled ineligible because he was born in Japan. The second place finisher, Jon Morris of Gaylord, Michigan, claimed the U.S. title with an average time of 20.06 seconds, and a best time of 16.64.
No word on whether the Japanese Rubiks Cube Federation will file a protest.
