Lipek becomes four-time FIBA 3x3 World Tour Dunk champion
19 Oct 2015
ABU DHABI (2015 FIBA 3x3 World Tour) - Rafal 'Lipek' Lipinski (Poland) made history by winning the Dunk Contest of the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Final for the fourth consecutive time in Abu Dhabi on 16 October 2015.
In other words, the 24-year-old won every single edition of the contest. The 1.89m two-legged dunker had previously won the title in Miami (2012), Istanbul (2013) and Tokyo (2014). He faced maybe his toughest opponent in years in Abu Dhabi with social media superstar Jordan 'Mission Impossible' Kilganon (Canada).
Kilganon started strong with this trademark 'scorpion dunk', enhanced with a behind the back twist but missed two dunks at the end of the contest.
Lipek had some of his best dunks of the year jumping over people, with his head nearly touching the rim. The Poznan native added a little showmanship as he wore a 'White men can jump' tee shirt on his last dunk, over four people standing on a chair.
