Boomshakalaka! Aussie player is first woman to dunk in Olympics8/3/2012
Under the old gymnastics scoring system, we'd have given Liz Cambage a perfect 10. But in basketball, even the first woman in Olympic history to dunk receives only the usual two points. That didn't stop everyone from going wild over Cambage's flush in Australia's 70-66 victory over Russia on Friday, the first time the 6-foot-8-inch player had done it in a game. Cambage called it an "out-of-body experience" and received the ultimate compliment from teammate Lauren Jackson, who's seen a few dunks in the WNBA but mostly of the breakaway variety. "I wish I could do that," Jackson said. Seconded. [Source]
Does the surprise element make a woman's dunking more thrilling?
