This guy won a race against Usain Bolt (with a Rubik’s cube)

It was a battle of fast fingers vs. fast feet. 

This isn’t an Olympic event, but maybe it should be. 

During Usain Bolt’s gold medal race in the 100 meters on Sunday, Rubik’s cube solver Anthony Brooks decided to race Bolt from the comfort of his own living room. He was able to beat Bolt’s 9.81 second time without much trouble. 

If you think that’s impressive, the current world record holder is a 14-year-old kid from Kentucky who solved the puzzle in a blistering 4.904 seconds. Let’s have that kid race against Vince Wilfork in the 40-yard dash.
