Basketball in Water – level 3

27-02-2023 15:00

A couple of young men were passing a basketball in a pool when they nailed an awesome pool dunk. It must have taken a lot of practice and a lack of fear.

You can watch the feat from multiple angles on a video. This video was very popular on the Internet and it is still amazing, even now.

Difficult words: nail (do something successfully), pool dunk (being in a pool and throwing a basketball into a basket), the lack (not have something), feat (an accomplishment), angle (a point of view).

You can watch the video news lower on this page.

Who was the best basketball player in the world in 2003?
