In 2002, Rocky aspired to set a world record in the game, which was to remain undefeated and have a special place in history even after he left the planet, so to speak. After being in the game since the 1970's, when he reached the age of 55, on 25 Oct 2005 Rocky  became the worlds fastest ever to jump shoot and clear the table in 14.16 sec, a world record set Publicly on National Television. World champions have attempted to  break this record publicly on TV, and one man in Finland done it on TV in around 11 seconds in late  2007, as seen on Youtube. But it was not recognised as he failed to raise the jump rail upwards, with some chark beneath, as Rocky did. Hence, Rocky remains the undisputed  World Record Champion, for speed Jump shooting  and his record remains undefeated to date (2009) and is in fact the Worlds fastest Jump shooter that the world has ever seen. His World Record, made the Hall of Cue Sport records,
