Pau Gasol cheers attempt by Gaza children to break Guinness basketball record

National Basketball Association Superstar and UNICEF Spain Ambassador Pau Gasol delivered a video message to children in Gaza today, throwing his support behind their attempt to shatter the current Guinness World Record in dribbling basketballs. The record-breaking attempt is part of the annual “Summer Games” organized by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) involving a quarter of a million children across the Gaza Strip.

“Today, against incredible odds, you -- the children of Gaza -- will break the previous Guinness World Record for the most basketballs dribbled at the same time,” Gasol said. “In doing so, you send a powerful message to the world that your hopes and dreams are as real as every other child’s, and that if given the chance, you can achieve the impossible. I believe you can achieve your dreams -- and I say -- Go for it!”

Over 7,500 children have been practicing for weeks to break the current world record for simultaneously bouncing basket balls, which was set in Indiana, USA, in September 2007. The number of balls bounced was just over three thousand.
