Illayaram Sekar from Chennai, India has set a new Guinness World Record for the number of Rubik’s Cubes solved underwater while holding his breath. The Indian managed to put together a total of 6 cubes and needed just 2 minutes and 17 seconds to do so.

To prepare himself as well as possible for the trial, Sekar trained for two years and used meditation techniques familiar to yoga, specifically Pranayama – a technique for mastering the breath, aimed at slowing it down as much as possible and making it rhythmic.

Guinness World Record Illayaram Sekar rubik's cube divers24.pl Interestingly, as Illayaram admitted, despite two years of practice, countless attempts and time spent underwater, he has… still not learned to swim.

The record attempt took place in a transparent container filled with water, so that the whole thing allowed film equipment to capture every rotation of the stacked cubes.

Independent witnesses were also present on site to verify the attempt and that it met the criteria required by the Guinness World Records Bureau.

This event was a turning point in my career. Now I am stronger and ready for more record attempts. Personally, I think the underwater category is the toughest, so I decided to go for it first,” Illayaram said after the attempt.

The Indian already has a plan for more record-breaking feats…

I have started to learn to ride a monocycle and this is another difficult category involving stacking cubes. I have a plan to do it next year. I am going to break the Pyramix cube records (a pyramid-shaped Rubik’s cube) and the underwater record using one hand

The current record for the most Rubik’s cubes solved on a monocycle is 250, set by American Caleb McEvoy in 2018, while the most Pyraminxes solved underwater is nine.
