The Guinness world record for the Fastest sport stacking individual cycle stack is 5.93 seconds and was achieved first by Steven Purugganan (USA) at the WSSA Greater Cleveland Ohio Sport Stacking Championships Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest playing card structure (10.39 m (34 ft 1.05 in) long, 2.88 m (9 ft 5.39 in) tall and 3.54 m [11 ft 7.37 in] wide), set by Bryan Berg.
In just more than two seconds, Smith turns three stacks of cups into three pyramids that disappear back into three stacks of cups.
Sport stacking participants "up-stack and down-stack" specially designed plastic cups in pre-determined sequences with lightning quickness and skill that requires extraordinary hand-eye coordination and concentration.
The April 6-7 world championships in Orlando drew nearly 250 stackers of all ages, representing 16 countries from as far away as South Korea and New Zealand.
