Teja Oblak has a new achievement to add to her basketball repertoire - arguably one she would never have imagined achieving.

Attending the Celje Forma Tool Fair last Thursday, the Slovenian women's national team player became the first person to defeat a basketball-shooting robot that was also in attendance at the fair - no small feat considering the robot has a shooting percentage of 95%.

Not only did she do it on her first time, but Oblak then managed to repeat the feat, whilst it took former national men's player Samo Udrih four attempts before claiming a win.

Unfortunately EuroBasket 2013 mascot Lipko could not walk away with a victory, with the robot reigning supreme in the battle of robot versus mascot.

"It was an interesting contest. Of course I'm glad I won," said Oblak following her win.
