Max Park, a Teen With Autism, is the 2017 Rubik’s Cube World Champion
As the summer comes to an end, Behavioral Health Works would like to look back at the story of Max Park, a teenager on the autism spectrum. He took part in this year’s World Rubik’s Cube Championship and came away with the GOLD by solving his puzzle in 5.87 seconds! Not 5.87 minutes, not 5.87 hours, but yes, 5.87 SECONDS! Go Max! He Represented the United States this summer at the world championship and made quite an impression on not only the Rubik’s Cube audience, but the world. Park initially began working on the Rubik’s Cube about five years ago as a way to work on his fine motor skills. And as a result, he then “one day decided to implement the Rubik’s Cube because it’s using [his] fine motors skills and all of a sudden it just took off…” said Max’s father in an interview with USA Today.
Watch his inspiring journey to becoming the 2017 world champion Here. Congrats again Max!
