Billiards Hall of Famer

NZ billiard legend Rocky Lane has made the sport’s Internet Hall of Fame thanks to his undefeated world record in jump shooting. In October 2005 Lane cleared all 15 balls off the table in 14.16 seconds on NZ national television. Despite efforts by the sport’s top players at last year’s World Pool Championships in the Philippines, the record has remained intact. “Yes, I heard they tried to defeat my record and am humbled that those star players would even consider my record to be something. For me, I do this for our great nation and can only keep on trying my best to do better,” said Lane on Billiards Forum. “I figure if Kiwis like Michael Campbell can get out there and do it, then there has to be room for other Kiwis, to try and do the same.”
