World Record Basketball Toss

These guys traveled all the way to Switzerland to throw basketballs. But it paid off when they landed a basket from 493 feet above and set a new world record. Australian trick shot artists Brett Stanford, Derek Herron, and Scott Gaunson, together known as How Ridiculous, took turns tossing a ball from the top of Mauvoisin Dam in Valais, Switzerland in September. Herron had the third shot, and it went in the basket at the bottom of the dam! How Ridiculous had actually held the world record twice before for the highest basketball shot, but were outdone by Side Perfect last year. Now that they've reclaimed the title, it will be hard for anyone else to find a place to even attempt to break it. Read more about the stunt at the Guinness World Records site. (via The Daily Dot)

Blogspot blogs do that occasionally, especially if you navigate out to a link and then back in. If you click the title of a post to isolate it, the right video will show up.
