Cuber Racks up Wins 

In "Impossible is Nothing" (BW, Jan. 11, 2006), we introduced wonder cuber Frank Morris, Eagle's Rubik's cube speed king who is jackhammering his way into the record books with cube-solving times that are just shy of the speed of light.

The weekend our story hit the stands, Morris competed in the CalTech 2006 Winter Rubik's Competition in San Francisco and as usual, Morris cleaned house. The Idaho speedcuber placed fourth in the 3x3x3, and his finishing time of 15:96 ties him for a 10th place ranking in the world. In the 4x4x4, Morris not only took first place, but beat out the second place finisher by a quantum 16 seconds. The lone competitor in the 5x5x5, Morris beat his personal best by 8 seconds, and went on to compete in the 3x3x3 one-handed event, as well as in his first 3x3x3 blindfold event.
