Reporter Sinks A Backwards Basketball Shot And Surprises Even Himself

You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.

TV journalist Patrick Reincke doesn’t let any shot intimidate him. So, when he was wrapping up a segment surrounding the Olympics for Southern Cross News in South Australia at a local basketball court, he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take a shot.

As he finished up his closing statement, the journalist launched a basketball over his head and completely nailed a backwards shot. The kids at the court erupted in cheers, but the winning reaction had to have been his own.

The look on his face was of pure shock, and rightfully so. Usually, it takes minutes worth of outtakes to sink a shot like that.
