This 593-Foot Free Throw Might Be the Greatest Basketball Shot Ever Made

If you thought those cross-court, buzzer-beating basketball shots you’ll find all over YouTube were impressive, you’ll be blown away by the How Ridiculous team’s latest stunt. They set an official Guinness World Record with this 593-foot free throw made from the top of the Mauvoisin Dam in Switzerland.


What’s even more impressive is that the team managed to sink the shot on only the third attempt. To any of us who spent entire weekends of our childhood trying to nail just one trick shot in our parent’s driveway, that’s unthinkable.
