August 6, 2010 | by | 0 Comments

A 17-year-old basketball fanatic claims to have set a world record for the farthest shot of all time – swishing from a staggering 228 feet.

Evan Sellers spent 90 minutes shooting from a 134 foot high platform in Birmingham, Alabama before successfully completing the shot.

The American is part of ‘The Legendary Shots’, a group of talented basketball players who film themselves pulling off near-impossible throws.

The group’s founder, Carson Stalnaker told Yahoo: “We thought it was a big deal when 50 people saw one of our shots on YouTube, let alone the millions who have ever seen them now. It’s been pretty crazy, but it’s been a lot of fun too.”

Following a succession of amazing feats and appearances on TV, the group have become cult icons stateside with their Youtube videos watched six million times.

This particular video has been viewed 3.1 million times in the last week.
