Background and Qualifications:
Ted St Martin is known for his records in consecutive free throw shooting. In 1977 he made 2,036 in a row. That remained the consecutive free throw mark until Dr. Tom Amberry broke that record in 1993, making 2,750 free throws in a row - ending on a make.
Ted re-claimed the record in 1996 by making 5,221 consecutive free throws. Ted is in his 70's now and still does exhibitions, teaching and coaching. His book, “The Art of Shooting Baskets”, is a best seller.
