I just read that Archie Manning could throw a football from one end of an end zone to the other, and that JaMarcus Russell can throw 75 yards while on one knee. What other amazing sport-specific skills do you know about?

I'm not asking about records accomplished during games, like say the longest pass ever completed or the fastest pitch ever measured in a baseball game; I mean skills that might be more applicable to raw athletic ability. I realize I may not be defining these parameters all that well, but in essence I'm fascinated by legends and reputations of men and women who can do amazing things, in a sport-specific context.
I also understand that some (most?) of these may be unverified claims and tall tales!
