Dunk a basketball

November 21, 2006

Today I read an exciting story in the KW Record. The article tells the story of a 30 year old guy who has always had a dream of being able to dunk a basketball. After working with a trainer by the name of Gil Thomas for two months, he had achieved his goal and amazed his friends. "Everyone was kind of shocked," Jara recalls. "They were giving me high-fives, saying, 'I can't believe you just did that. I give you props, it was pretty... amazing.'" Gil says that he believes anyone can dunk if they train right and are willing to work hard. Genetics has nothing to do with it. "Anybody can dunk a ball," Thomas says, "if you train correctly for it."
