Hungarian achieves world's farthest flip and basketball dunk
A Hungarian man set the record for the farthest forward flip trampette slam dunk in November 2016.
Bálint Huszár set the record in Budapest with a huge 6.18-metre dunk (20.28 feet).
The attempt took place on Guinness World Records day with the support of Face Team Acrobatic Sports Theatre.
Face Team used an Eurotramp TeamGym mini trampoline for the record attempt. Bálint has been performing acrobatic basketball for six years, and trained for a week before attempting this challenge.
“This feels like a dream come true from my childhood,” he said after the record was confirmed.
Bálint beat a record that had remained unchallenged for almost eight years when he netted a basketball from a staggering distance of 6.18 metres (20.28 ft).
The previous record of 6.09 metres (20 ft) held by Milwaukee Bucks Rim Rockers member David St. Pierre (USA) was achieved in 2008.
