Lobbing a basketball off the top of a dam and sending it precisely through a hoop 593 feet below? “How Ridiculous”!
But then that’s just what this group of Australians calls itself. And this time, Derek Herron, Brett Stanford and Scott Gaunson set out for Mauvoisin Dam in Switzerland to set a new record, breaking the previous one of 533 feet.
They filmed the whole thing for us to wonder at. From multiple angles. Herron, who made the shot, says, “It was a surreal moment nailing it on the third shot. I watched the ball head towards the rim and saw the net move but still had my doubts that it went in until I saw Scott going crazy.”
No one bothered with the stunning views from the dam.
