Tasmania’s Gordon Dam is 126.5m tall. We went to the top and put a basketball hoop at the bottom. The rest is history (and a new world record)!

A big thanks to the Hydro Tasmania, Aardvark Adventures and the Sunday Night program for helping us to make this shot a reality. It’s been a dream of ours to make a shot off Gordon Dam since 2010. This shot breaks our previous Guinness World Record for the greatest height from which a basketball is shot which was 91m off the Euromast in the Netherlands in 2013 (watch that shot here: Next stop: The Burj Al Arab Helicopter Pad? Or the Burj Khalifa?

    Thumbs up to the guy that walked the ball back up to the top after each of
    the 1,319 misses.

    A couple things….it had to take a TON of tries….SO, where’d you get all
    those basketballs ?? You sure did not drag the same one up over and over.
    How many balls did you have because in the video, I only saw ONE.
    Another thing that is a concern here is velocity. A ball dropped from a
    height of 415 feet would be moving at 111mph when it made that drop….so
    at some point on other misses, you’d have dinged up that net and rim to a
    good degree. Not saying you did not do this legit….just saying some
    facts are missing here.
