On January 30th, 2007, Abel Brata broke a Rubik’s Cube record in Indonesia by solving the cube in 19.33 seconds, according to the Indonesian Record Museum (MURI). The event took place at the Grand Candi Hotel in Semarang, and was held to celebrate MURI’s 17th anniversary.
Abel Brata’s achievement was one of many at the event, as MURI also honored other record-breakers such as Meliana for her ability to perform mental calculations using the abacus, as well as those who excelled in hula-hooping and other unique feats.
MURI, founded in 1990, is an organization dedicated to documenting and recognizing extraordinary achievements by Indonesians. The organization has recognized thousands of records across a wide variety of fields, from sports to science to the arts.
Abel Brata’s specific record-breaking feat is not mentioned in the available sources, but his achievement highlights the diversity and richness of talent in Indonesia. From mental math to physical feats, Indonesians continue to push the boundaries of what is possible and showcase their unique abilities to the world.
MURI’s anniversary celebration serves as a reminder of the importance of recognizing and celebrating the achievements of individuals and communities. By acknowledging and documenting these accomplishments, we can inspire future generations to pursue their own dreams and break their own records.
