A competitor (under 18) was spotted having a very short memorisation and using a method not usually used for blind solving. After the judge placed the sight-blocker in a better position, the competitor could not continue. The competitor eventually admitted that he was peeking under the blindfold and did not know how to solve blind.
The following action is being taken:
- Disqualification of the competitor's 3x3x3 Blindfolded times
- Competitor to be banned from WCA competitions until 14th February 2017
