“I’m extremely proud of Leland for officially breaking a world record and adding his name to the Guinness Book of World Records,” Ryan told Lakeland Connect. “He has worked quite hard at memorizing pages and pages of cube solving algorithms, spent hours training his fingers to move as fast as his brain, and is well-deserving of this honour.”

 Congratulations Leland you’re an inspiration to never give up when you have a dream. Hard work pays off.
