8th - 9th April

Speed Stacking in Singapore

Sport stacking also goes by the names of cup stacking or speed stacking. It involves arranging specially designed plastic cups, normally 9-12, in a sequence that is pre-determined. The objective is to do this in the shortest possible time. The cups are designed in such a way that it aids the speed of the stacking, which is normally in a pyramid formation. Over the weekend, Singapore had the honour of witnessing competitors with some of the most amazing reflex skills compete at the World Sport Stacking Championships. Very popular in East Asia, their athletes have also claimed victory in most of the disciplines. Full results can be found here:
