Boy with no arms sinks three-pointers in high school basketball match

Take our word for it, the video that follows is bloody great.

In fact, don’t just take our word for it. Watch it.

It comes from a school basketball game from across the pond and its star is 13-year-old Jamarion Styles, who sinks a couple of three-pointers for his team, Eagles Landing Middle School.

What makes this particularly impressive is that Jamarion has no arms and was playing the game without prosthetics.

According to the Los Angeles Times, he lost his arms as a baby to a rare bacterial infection. Clearly, this hasn’t prevented him from taking to the basketball court…


Jamarion also made headlines last year when students at the University of Florida used 3-D printed materials and other low-cost materials to make prosthetic devices to help Styles pursue one of his other hobbies – drumming.
