Back in the day, my friends and I would often spend our lazy afternoons playing basketball on any one of our driveways. Sure, we were more than capable of breaking a few ankles and nailing 3’s from long-range, but we certainly weren’t busy setting any type or records.
The same, however, can’t be said for Brett Stanford, Derek Herron and Scott Gaunson. Recently, the trio of friends trekked all the way to the top of the Mauvoisin Dam in Switzerland where they set a new Guinness World Record for the highest basketball shot ever made. Perched atop of the dam, Herron squared up his shoulders and launched a shot towards a basket located 593.7 feet below.
Incredibly, it was nothing but net.
