A contest with a $10,000 prize is being held for anyone in the world wishing to compete in the first ever world three point shooting contest. The winner will receive a prize of $10,000. The contest is open to anyone in any location in the world. To enter, visit http://www.threepointchampion.com.
In basketball, there is no record kept of the most consecutive three point shots hit from the non-professional distance of 19 feet, nine inches. There is a record kept in the NBA of the most consecutive shots hit with the game clock on which is 13 by Brent Price and Terry Mills in 1996. The contest is intended to establish one but not in any type of game situation. Shooters will not be competing in this contest with a game clock on but will be chasing to establish a new world record from non-professional distance to go along with the cash prize.
The contest is being sponsored by Brett Winstead, owner of Argyle Leasing Company, an online business that operates out of Cramerton, NC, just outside of Charlotte. He is the chairman of the event.
There are no age restrictions to participate. Anyone from anywhere in the world may participate by using any kind of video camera, VHS or digital, if taped properly according to the rules. Each participant may take as much time as he or she needs to practice shooting shots from three point distance until the deadline in April of next year. The person who hits the most consecutive shots on camera and follows the rules correctly will be able to make the claim as the world's best three point shooter and win the prize. Participants may shoot from a gymnasium or their own home basketball goal, if rules are followed. The entry fee is five dollars.
