Quoting from his post on speedsolving:

“NISS solve.

Pre-scramble: L

2x2x3 block: B2 D’ F R2 B D

Pre-scramble: D’ B’ R2 F’ D B2

All but 4 corners: L2 U2 L F’ U’ F2 U
Correction: D’ B’ R2 F’ * D B2

Insert at *: F’ D B2 D’ + F D B2 D’
Insert at +: U F D F’ U’ F D’ F’

I got the 13-move skeleton in 19 min., and wrote down the 20-move
final solution in 50 min. Then I checked the solution again and again,
and was satisfied in 55 min. I brought my sheet to Ton Dennenbroek and
reported my result.

Thanks to everyone, I finally did it!
But as Mike Hughey said, it is not the end, but surely this record will be further broken.
The next world record is under God’s number!”
