The Beijing resident wowed the crowd in vertical height challenge; judges included LeBron James and Paul George.
With a vertical height of 43.7 inches, Heng Wang from Beijing bested four other finalists at the Greater China Nike+ Basketball dunk showcase at Shanghai's Nike+ Festival of Sport 2012 on Friday. The contest, open to participants internationally this summer, featured judges including LeBron James, Amar'e Stoudemire, Rudy Gay, Paul George and Chinese men's national team assistant coach Li Nan. Football player LaDainian Tomlinson as well as skateboarders Eric Koston, Omar Salazar, Stefan Janoski and Theotis Beasley also joined in the judging.
Nike+ Basketball measures how high, how hard and how quickly players complete. Players competing in the showcase wore the Nike Hyperdunk+, which is connected to the Nike+ Basketball mobile app.
Aside from the slam dunk showcase, Nike+ trial zones were set up for festival attendees to experience how "information is motivation." Rudy Gay and Paul George also stopped by the trial zones to check out the action.
Next up: A Live Dunk Showcase in Berlin on Aug. 27. LeBron will serve as the official judge for the Nike+ Global Dunk Showcase Finals.
