Dear WCA community,

The WRC was informed by several community members that the puzzles Kaijun Lin used for both his current world records in 4x4x4 Blindfolded and 5x5x5 Blindfolded had an overlay sticker. According to Regulation 3l2, such puzzles are not allowed in blindfolded events.

We have investigated in this case and received a confirmation by the WCA Delegates of the competitions that they checked the puzzles and decided the logos are not distinguishable by feel. Accordingly, they did not grant extra attempts, which could be used to replace the affected results now. For these reasons, we have decided to keep the results.
