Video: A new world record for highest basketball trick shot ever made
Do you want to see something really amazing? Of course you do.
Seen here is a group called How Amazing Shots setting the new world record for the highest basketball shot ever made. The unbelievable shot itself was heaved from the top of the Olympic Tower at Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, Finland.
The official distance was recorded at approximately 238.5 feet. That amounts to the length of an American football field, minus the endzones.
It looks like the guys had to take a stiff wind into consideration when launching the ball, as well.
