This Is The Mother Of All Basketball Trick Shots
Jul 8, 2015
Essentially, they made this shot from atop the equivalent of a 46-story building. No telling how many attempts it took them, but the bottom line is that they eventually made it and have the world record to prove it.
A group of young men from Australia have a YouTube channel called "How Ridiculous" and are most well known for breaking and re-breaking the Guinness Book of World Record's "Greatest Heights From Which A Basketball Can Be Shot" record. Sure enough, they are breaking that record yet again. In 2011, they achieved the record by shooting a basket from 66.89 meters (219 feet) above the hoop and then in 2013, increased the record to 91.1 meters (299 feet). This time, they chose to shoot the ball from atop Tasmania's Gordon Dam at 140 meters (459 feet) and well, the rest is history.
