Small Town Claims To Fame & Other Random Nonsense

My name is Jamison Huhner and my blog presents and discusses claims to fame for small towns all over the U.S. And other random nonsense. Claims to fame include celebrity residents past and present, historic events (battles, crimes), oddities, records of some sort and a million other things.  I’m a graduate of Devils Lake Central and, eventually, a graduate from the University of North Dakota with degrees in Russian/Soviet studies and business. After college I moved south to Atlanta before finally ending up in Nashville where I now live with my wife and twin boys.

The Claim to Fame – Ted St. Martin – World’s Record for Consecutive Free Throws

 

In my fifty plus years I have seen some amazing athletic accomplishments such as  Jordan in the NBA, amazing catches in football, and astonishing feats in track and field, but I have to say, that the one sports record that I find nothing short of miraculous is Ted St. Martin’s record of 5,221 consecutive free throws.  Are you kidding me?  How on earth can someone make, let’s say, 200 in a row?  Even the best NBA players shoot about 90% if they are lucky and the record in the NBA is 97 by Micheal Williams when he was with the Timberwolves.   Now let’s review that number again.  5,221. It just blows my mind.

 

Here’s a little visit Ted had with Charles Kuralt years ago.
