Que Jianyu, 13, has been playing with Rubik's cubes for seven years and is the holder of six Guinness World Records. In December 2017, Que set a new record for solving three Rubik's cubes while juggling for five minutes and 6.61 seconds. Despite being a world-renowned Rubik's cube player, Que still takes the game as a hobby: "I've had a lot of fun solving the cubes. I've traveled around the world to compete. I've won awards and titles, and made friends at the games." 

Que started to play with the cubes at the age of 6 by learning from his father who helped him memorize the formulas. Now, his mother has learned the skill as well, and playing with the cubes has turned into a family activity. "It took him about three years to practice," his father said.
