News: Cup Stacking at Unimaginable Speed

Cup Stacking at Unimaginable Speed

To say Steven Purugganan is fast is an understatement.

The twelve-year-old from Longmeadow, Massachusetts has won two Cup Stacking world championships, and appeared in commercials for McDonald's and Firefox.

According to Steven's Wikipedia page, he has been featured in "...a front-page article in The Wall Street Journal, a one-page article in Time magazine titled 'Stacktacular' and one in ESPN The Magazine titled 'How to Pile the Plastic.'"

What is Cup Stacking? Also known as Sport Stacking and Speed Stacking, Cup Stacking "is an individual and team sport that involves stacking specialized plastic cups in specific sequences in as little time as possible." 

Sound simple? It takes a bit more skill than you may think. Take a lesson or two, and you will see... it takes some practice.

Get inspired by Steven's videos below. (His little jumps of joy at the end of each session are too cute...)!
