Teen sets world record by solving 117 Rubik's Cubes while on unicycle

FREMONT, Calif. -- There is a world record for just about everything and today, and a young man proved it Saturday by breaking a record most people have never heard of.

At Fremont's American High School, 16-year-old Owen Farmer took center stage atop a unicycle.

Farmer solved 117 Rubik's Cubes while pedaling a unicycle. He not only left the old record of 80 in the dust, he did it while raising money for charity.

"For my own personal satisfaction and to help out the charity that I'm fundraising for.," Farmer said. "It's called the Not for Sale Campaign, which helps aid human trafficking victims."

Farmer will bring his unicycle to San Francisco Sunday to try and break two more records, the most stairs climbed on a unicycle and the most stairs climbed in 30 seconds on a unicycle.
