Guy Tries To Solve Rubik's Cube Before Usain Bolt Wins His Race

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt is widely regarded as the fastest man on the face of the Earth, and if you've been paying attention to the 29-year-old's performances at the 2016 Rio Olympics, it's not hard to see why.

Until now, no one has been able to catch Bolt once he leaves the starting blocks, but one man dared to do the impossible.

Anthony Michael Brooks isn't an Olympic sprinter, but he is stupid good at solving a Rubik's Cube. In fact, I'd say he's arguably the fastest Rubik's Cube solver in the known universe.

He has to be, because as you can see in the video above, courtesy of Brooks' YouTube channel, this man actually solved a Rubik's Cube before Usain Bolt crossed the finish line to win gold in the men's 100-meter race.

For the record, Bolt's time in the 100-meter final was 9.81 seconds, which means Brooks solved the puzzle in less than 9.5 seconds.

You really have to tip your cap to Brooks. It's not like he had the cube in his hand while he was sitting comfortably, either.

As you can see, Brooks had both hands on the floor and was in proper pre-race position before the starting gun went off.

It looks like Usain Bolt has finally met his match.
