Although the teen girl made it look effortless, it actually took her a lot of practice to be able to land 9 shots back to back. Maddison was partially inspired to undertake the feat due to an ankle injury. Since she couldn’t actually play basketball while recovering, she just focused on shooting baskets.
“The recovery took much longer than I expected, however, I never gave up,” she said.
