The Australian teen won his second Rubik’s Cube World Championship in a row in Sao Paulo, Brazil, over the weekend, completing a 3x3x3 cube in 5.69 seconds, just under the world record.

His moves are practically seamless, and the video certainly has us looking over at our own Rubik’s Cubes with envy.

“The win was also really nice as well,” Zemdegs said. “Because I won last time, I was sort of less nervous this time because I had already won one so that sort of helped a bit, but yeah it was obviously really cool.”
