Man Sets 14 Records For Free Throws


CENTRALIA, Kan. (UPI) — A Kansas man who has set 14 Guinness World Records with his free throwing skills in the past 26 months says he has studied the art “more than anybody.”

Bob Fisher, 54, of Centralia, has set records in the past 26 months including making 33 free throws in 30 seconds, 50 free throws in a minute, 92 free throws in two minutes and 448 free throws in 10 minutes, The New York Times reported Thursday.

Fisher said he has dozens of books on basketball and the art of shooting and he has binders full of photographs, diagrams and equations related to making free throws.

“I’ve studied it more than anybody,” Fisher said.

Fisher broke six records last week at the Centralia High School in the space of an hour, including making 88 free throws in 2 minutes using alternating hands.

“No one’s going to break that one until they find out what I know,” Fisher said of his technique.
