An 18-year-old student from Georgia solved six Rubik’s Cubes under water in one breath on Friday, in a bid to set a new Guinness World Record.

為了創新金氏世界紀錄,喬治亞一名18歲學生週五一口氣在水下解了6個魔術方塊。

Vako Marchelashvili was submerged in a glass tank for just over one minute and 44 seconds as he flipped, turned and solved the cubes in front of a crowd at the Gino Paradise Tbilisi aqua park.

瓦科.馬赫歇拉許維列於「提比里斯吉諾天堂」水上樂園群眾面前,沉入一只玻璃缸,只花剛好超過1分44秒撥轉解開方塊。

He said he had been preparing for the underwater challenge for six months, training several hours a day.

他說他已為這次水下挑戰準備了6個月,一天練習好幾個小時。

"I trained a lot planning to break a record - and to ensure my safety, because even a small mistake could be dangerous and life-altering," Marchelashvili said afterwards.

馬赫歇拉許維列事後說道,「我練習了很多,打算破紀錄——以及確保自身安全,因為即使小差錯都能很危險並改變生命。」

After observing Marchelashvili’s attempt, the Georgian Records Federation issued a diploma confirming his result. They will send their evidence to the Guinness World Records headquarters for verification.

在觀察馬赫歇拉許維列的嘗試後,喬治亞紀錄聯盟頒發了一張證書來證實他的成績。他們會把證據寄到金氏世界紀錄總部驗證。

The current underwater record of five cubes was set by Anthony Brooks in New Jersey in the United States in August 2014, according to the Guinness World Record website.(Reuters)
