Phoenix Cube Championship 18
THE BIG ONE
After months of organizing and learning from what we’d been doing, we were finally prepared for something big. Phoenix Cube Championship had to be the greatest and grandest competition we’d ever done and we wanted to make sure of it. With only one month in our hands, we had a lot to get done and little time to do it. We started off by hunting for venues, and hit the jackpot, getting what turned out to be one of the most ideal venues for a competition. Then we hunted for Sponsors and when Qiyi gave us a big yes , we knew we were onto something huge.
A look back ..
For us at Cubenama , Phoenix Cube Championship 18 was more than just a competition. All this time , we’d been so busy behind competitions and the store that we totally forgot, it has been almost half a year since began functioning as a team. This meant a lot to us, and gave us hope for an amazing future at Cubenama. The competition was filled with emotions, and also with a ton of National Records.
Chetan Roger Dhanjal wrecked the Skewb single setting a new record with a time of 1.61 seconds. On day two, we had Bhargav Narasimhan beat his own best to get a 12.22 seconds 3×3 OH national record average , again ! This was followed with Alaik Bhatia finally getting the NR Square-1 average of 10.58 seconds who went on to with the competition with a 8.78 avg in the 3×3 finals.
