There are some striking similarities between William Orrell and Chu-Chun Yang, the fastest male and female sport stackers in the world. They both set their first world record at the age of 13. Both are competing in the 15-16 age division, and on May 26th, 2015, they are both once again the sole world record holders for all 3 individual events.
William Orrell’s journey to hold all 5 sport stacking world records at the same time did not come without it's share of obstacles. With a time of 1.824 seconds in the 3-6-3 at the WSSA Memorial Day Stack in Beaufort, South Carolina, Orrell eclipses the 1.840 seconds world record previously held by Josh Hainsel. May 26th, 2015 will go in history as the 16-year-old has finally achieved the astronomical feat only previously achieved by Timo Reuhl and Steven Purugganan. Orrell will look forward to extending his fine run of form at the 2015 AAU Junior Olympic Games Sport Stacking Championships in Virginia Beach!
Not to be outdone by her male counterpart, Chu-Chun Yang extends her gap as the fastest female at the WSSA 2015 Grade A Taiwan Championships. On June 6th, 2015, Taiwan’s most elite stackers traveled to New Taipei City to showcase their skills. The fastest of the bunch was Chu-Chun Yang. On her third and final attempt in Stack of Champions, Yang set the new 3-6-3 female overall world record in 2.042 seconds.
