Tibetan girls show talent in court of dreams

LHASA-For 17-year-old Tibetan girl Cigla, playing basketball at an elevation of more than 3,000 meters is as easy as her idol LeBron James nailing an iconic slam dunk.

Cigla is a freshman student at Nagchu No 2 Senior High School in Lhasa, capital of Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region, which is located at 3,650 meters above sea level. She now plays point guard for the school's 12-member female basketball team.

"Practice makes perfect. You get used to the elevation when you love the sport and train hard enough," says the budding basketball star, who has been passionate about the sport since taking it up three years ago.
