Ridiculous 180m shot new basketball world record

Some things are so insane you”ll never imagined they would happen.
This  basketball shot from the top of the 180 metre high Mauvoisin Dam in Switzerland seems like one of them.

But it took a couple attempts for Derek Herron, part of You Tube’s How Ridiculous to land the shot.
The group – Brett Stanford, Herron and Scott Gaunson – have been competing with American’s Dude Perfect for the world record of highest basketball shot.
And they succeded  with extending the existing record by 18 metres with the dam shot.

The shot

Herron, who broke the record, said: ‘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.’
