We May Just Have the Record for 3-Pointers Launched in a Minute over Here

No matter what the end result of this world-record attempt, dropping this many three-pointers is still impressive. 

Bob's Blitz spotted this video, which features one man's brief pursuit for worldwide glory. According to the YouTube description, this is "Coach Gerrod" from OHoops training. 

After a brief jaunt through their website, we assume that refers to Gerrod Trytten, who is listed on this brief biography page

His bio states he has a "bachelor’s degree in Sports Management, specializing in coaching, personal training, and human performance, from the University of Central Florida in 2010." It says nothing on his ability to drop one three after another at a record clip. 

First things first. The Guinness World Records page for three-pointers made in one minute states the current record holder is Daniel Loriaux from Oregon, who made 25 back in 2007. 

While Trytten and the rest of the crew from OHoops await official word from the folks over at Guinness, you can savor what might be a record-shattering attempt. 

We do have to address one of the more obvious concerns: The video is ramped a bit. OK, it's pretty apparent the video is sped up, but it seems the actual shooting begins at about the seven-second mark and concludes at about 48 seconds. 

So a minute of shooting is compacted somewhere into the 40-second mark for various promotional reasons. 

It remains to be seen if that hurts them with Guinness in the long run 

We certainly hope not, because Coach Gerrod can truly shoot the lights out of the building. Now if we can just get them to speed up the three-point contest during All-Star weekend, we will be all set.
