A group of YouTubers, known as ‘How Ridiculous’ made an incredible world record basketball shot from Tasmania’s Gordon Dam.

Team member, Brett Stanford, already held the Guinness World Record for longest basketball shot after hitting the back of the net from the EuroMast tower in the Netherlands at 91m in 2013.

This time they took it even further, with Stanford attempting the shot from a whopping 126.5m (415ft).

Heavy rain fall and strong winds failed to dampen the group’s motivation.

The impressive feat was finally achieved after many failed attempts over the course of three days.
