The 11-year-old has a total collection of 45 different cubes in 10 different styles, including pyramid, 5x5 and 6x6 styles.

Sean’s best time on the 2x2x2, a smaller type of cube similar to a Rubik'sCube, is 7.13 seconds, beating the qualifying time by 5 seconds.

The competition that dates to 2004 has grown to become the largest cubing match in the country. The event continuously sets the newest national and world records every year.
