Brazilian Gabriel Pereira Campanha solves Rubik’s Cube with feet in 32.51 seconds

Sao Paulo, Brazil just hosted the global Speedcubing elite at the Rubik’s Cube World Championship – the first time that the competition has ever been held in South America.

At Colegio Etapa, a school in the centre of Sao Paulo, Brazil’s Gabriel Pereira Campanha completed the iconic puzzle in an average time of 32.51 seconds – especially impressive seeing as he used only his feet. This time was enough to earn him the crown in his first ever World Championship.

In a tight contest, he beat 2013 champion Jakub Kipa of Poland, whose average of 36.44 seconds was just enough to hold on to second place ahead of Japan’s Yuhei Takagi, who averaged 36.66 seconds.

Top five in 3 x 3 Rubik’s Cube ‘With Feet’ final:

Gabriel Pereira Campanha Brazil 32.51 seconds
