London Eye: Super Sheila claims slam dunk history

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."
