“The first time I solved the Rubik’s cube it took me about 3 minutes (not bad!). When I was at the top of my speedcubing career I could do it in about 8 seconds, on average. Now that I am more focused on creating art, it takes me more time, about ten seconds: I have lost touch a bit!” Giovanni Contardi source
