Almost two decades ago, a basketball fan near Seattle named Tom Steury set a goal for himself to make a million free throws.  And he finally did it last Thursday on his 82nd birthday.

He initially started by taking 100 shots a day, and he’s gotten pretty good at it.  He says his shooting percentage is around 94% now, and he once made 222 in a row.  (Here’s an insane stat:  The world record is 5,221 in a row.)
