Hansel Emmanuel brought the thunder with his thrilling show at the City of Palms Dunk Contest over the weekend.

The 17-year-old Life Christian Academy senior is a 6’6″ top Division I basketball prospect and his award-winning shot at the event almost broke the internet and even made it to Sports Center.

Emmanuel lost his arm in an accident back when he was in elementary school in the Dominican Republic, but refuses to let that stop him from achieving his dreams.

He showed off his amazing skills and broke out all the classic dunks including a 360 reverse windmill, the between-the-legs-bounce throw down and a cradle slam, according to MaxPreps.
