It's safe to say the odds were stacked against Gustavo Angel Tamayo, the Bryan College senior who was selected to participate in a basketball shooting contest with the chance of winning $10,000.

This wasn't your average basketball shooting contest, where the participant has to make a half-court shot to win the money. No, Tamayo had to make four shots (a layup, a free throw, a three-pointer and a half-courter). And get this -- Tamayo, a soccer player who grew up in England and had "never played competitive basketball," was attempting to contest with a broken finger on his left hand.

But somehow Tamayo pulled off the feat, sinking all four shots in just under 30 seconds to take home $10,000. Here's the video of Tamayo's amazing performance:

"I'm not sure there's a tougher contest," Don Rekoske, the basketball coach at Bryan College, told the Chattanooga Times Free Press‎. "He had to go four for four, and you have to be hurried to make it within 30 seconds. It's a very tough contest to win, but when you win you get paid for it. He won $10,000; some will probably go toward his school bill and some in his pocket."

Bryan told the Free Press‎ that his secret was concentration.

"It's just an amazing feeling," Tamayo said. "It was awesome to share it with all my friends."
