Winning this contest is a long shot
During a first-half break, the contestant had 30 seconds to make a layup, a free throw, a 3-pointer and a half-court shot. The prize was $25,000. The contestant made the layup and the free throw, but never had a chance on two 3-point attempts.
I don't think the sponsor would even need to buy insurance on the prize money. Even if someone had NBA-level shooting skills, imagine how fast he or she would have to be just to get in two half-court attempts.
I think the prize money is safe for a long time.
