My son got an interesting Christmas present this year. It’s called Speed Stack, and it’s a kit for playing a cupstacking game. It’s all about hand-eye coordination, patterns and getting faster and faster as your practice and practice. It’s not the type of sport you’re going to see on ESPN in Primetime, but after watching the introduction DVD, it’s very intriguing and something that my son is pretty excited about playing. It seems that Colorado is the epicenter for this sport, which is where the world champion, world’s fastest cupstacker resides. That person is Emily Fox and she’s probably a high school junior or senior by now.
If you’d like more information, you can visit the Speed Stack site or the Official World Sport Stacking Association website. After visiting the WSSA site, it looks like Emily Fox’s record of 7.43 seconds for the fully cycle has been beaten by Robin Stangenberg with a time of 7.41 seconds. To get an idea for what this is all about, visit the WSSA site and check-out the video of Robin Stangenberg setting the new world record.
