Jersey City, New Jersey – 14-year-old Drew Brads of Xenia, Ohio set a new World Record average time for solving the Rubik’s Pyraminx puzzle at the Rubik’s U.S. Nationals Competition today in Jersey City. Brads solved the Pyraminx with an average time of 2.90 seconds in the first round of competition. The previous record was 2.96 seconds.

 

Brads is also the North American Record holder for a single-solve on the Pyraminx, with a time of 1.71 seconds, a record he has held since 2012.

 

Brads will compete in the Rubik’s US Nationals for two more days in the next rounds of the Pyraminx event as well as the 3×3 or “regular” Rubik’s Cube and the 2×2, 5×5 cube, and Skewb events. He is at the U.S. Nationals thanks to a partnership with kids’ video review website KidzVuz.com, a safe, fully-moderated, bully-free site for kids 7-14.

 

Of his Pyraminx World Record set today, Brads says: “This achievement has been my goal for more than 2 years, and after so many near misses and disappointments, I am truly thrilled to have this accomplishment. Another huge thanks to Kidzvuz.com for sponsoring me.“

 

Brads will return to Xenia after the Rubik’s U.S. Nationals concludes on Sunday. You can catch him cubing live and in person at the Dayton Metro Library summer Party in the Park on Saturday August 9th from 1-3 PM outside the Main Library in Cooper Park.

Xenia, OH: 14-year-old Rubik’s Cube phenomenon Drew Brads of Xenia, who last July won the title of World Champion on the Rubik’s Pyrmanix at the Rubik’s Cube World Championships, announces today that he is partnering with the kids video review site KidzVuz.com. KidzVuz is Brads’ official sponsor for the Rubik’s Cube US Nationals competition which will take place in Jersey City, New Jersey on August 1-3, 2014.

“I’m really pumped to be partnering with KidzVuz.com to help get other kids excited about Rubik’s Cubes, and their help in getting me to nationals could not be more appreciated. I started cubing at age nine and I would have loved to have had access to a site like KidzVuz at that time. It has a lot to offer kids no matter what their interests are.”

KidzVuz.com co-founder Rebecca Levey says working with Brads is a great fit. “KidzVuz is all about empowering kids so we jumped at the chance to sponsor Drew and support his super cool skills and talent.  We know that our tween and teen audience will love to see Drew compete, and get inside tips and tricks from a teen master.”

In addition to being the Pyraminx World Champion, Brads is also the North American Record Holder in that event, having solved it in 1.71 seconds at an official competition. As far as the U.S. Nationals coming up in just over a week, he says, “Although I mostly attend competitions in order to have fun talking to other cube enthusiasts, I do have a few goals that I would really like reach. First of all I would like to place in the top 8 competitors for the standard 3×3 cube, and achieve an average time of less than 9 seconds. Secondly, I would like to defend my title as Pyraminx National Champion. Finally, I would like to fulfill my long-term goal of breaking the world record for the Pyraminx, which currently stands at 2.96 seconds. Right now I’m only 0.05 seconds away from this record, so I have high hopes!”

As part of their partnership, Brads has made a three-part tutorial video series covering the Rubik’s Cube on KidzVuz.com which you can see on his KidzVuz Channel at https://www.kidzvuz.com/kidz/xtowncuber/reviews/  and will also be promoting KidzVuz.com on his own YouTube channel at youtube.com/xtowncuber.
