World-record moment a basketball trick-shot specialist drops a ball from 130 metres – and gets it in the hoop
A team of basketball trick shot experts have set a new world record by making a shot from 126.5 metres above the ring, smashing their previous record of 91 metres.
The Australian group of friends, called “How Ridiculous”, attempted their crazy goal atop Tasmania's Gordon Dam. Footage, captured by Channel 7's Sunday Night, shows the ball curve in the air before the satisfying swishing through the net.
“There was definitely some luck involved but really a shot like this is more likely when you can consistently put the same spin on the ball every time,” the group wrote online. “There are some good things that happen in life with some luck, some skill and lots of hard work.”
