Little Big Shots: Local kid solving Rubik’s Cubes with speed

Local News

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — If you’ve ever solved or tried solving a Rubik’s Cube, you know those miniature mental puzzles aren’t the easiest things to solve. But that’s not the case for 11-year old Trevor Foley. 

“A couple of my friends at school were doing it and I mean, it doesn’t look that hard so I thought I might as well try it out,” said Trevor. “It’s hard at the start to try and solve them but then once you learn it, it’s easy.” 

Even when Trevor explains how he solves a cube, it sounds confusing. 

“You want to build a side and a layer and then use algorithms to solve the top and then another layer,” said Foley. 

He’s been solving Rubik’s Cubes for a year or so now and just recently competed against 80 people of all ages at the inaugural Arnold Classic speed cubing competition. 

This is just the start of his speed cubing career and plenty more competitions to come. First, he wants to improve on his already fast solve times. 

“I know beginner’s methods but there are more advanced methods to use. I want to get really fast. There’s no like time, but I just want to get faster,” said Foley.
