London Eye: Super Sheila claims slam dunk history
Saturday 04 August 2012
It looks like London has seen the first ever slam dunk in Olympic women's basketball, scored yesterday by Liz Cambage in Australia's 70-66 victory over Russia.
The sport's international federation, FIBA, were unable to confirm whether the 6ft 7in Australian's feat was a Games first but Cambage was still on a high after the game.
"It's good to finally do it and get everyone off my back about it," said the 20-year-old.
"I was wide open and I felt it and just did it. It was an out-of-body experience. I wasn't thinking about it."
