Tyson Mao: WCA Member Retires After 10 Years

Tyson Mao, a WCA (World Cube Association) board member retires after 10 years of serving the Cubing Community.

Tyson was part of the WCA at an early age of 19. Now at nearly 30, he wants to move on and accomplish other things. The most recent World Championship was lead by him and other WCA members. With over 600 cubing enthusiasts, his team was able to create a great atmosphere where people who shared the same passion were able to build friendships and share their knowledge and skills of cubing.

Thank you Tyson for all you have done! Your work for the community will always be remembered!
