Olivier Rioux is a Quebec high school student who is also a World Record holder for being the tallest teen and as you'd expect, he is chasing his Basketball dream because at 7 foot 6, how hard could basketball really be. They'll have to start raising the nets to 15 feet to make the sport more challenging!
At 9 years old, he got noticed at a Baskeball camp, because he was about the same size as the Canadian team center who was at the camp, which is when they started pushing his career.
Now that he's 7 foot 6, he can dunk without even jumping, and the people at IMG have sent him down to their youth training facility, where they've created a lot of top athletes, while prepping him for the NBA with 3 hours of school and the rest of the time spent training for his sport.
Clearly, IMG see dollar signs!
No words. You’ll be hearing a lot about this young man. Canadian Olivier Rioux is 7-6, 16 years young and is headed to IMG Academy in Florida. Wishing him the best. pic.twitter.com/uWr6guvLfT
