The associated press requested permission to post the video, and now it is showing up on websites and news stations across the country.
***Update #3 I cant’ keep up with the number of websites and TV stations that have featured the clip. Oman has officially taken over the internet.

Bleacher Report! (Over 20,000 reads, was one of the trending videos on the main page)
CNN (it was also shown on tv)
Rippa.com (some random website from overseas, the write up is hillarious. “Northfield had a chance to seal the win with a free throw but old mate fluffed his shot. The ball landed into the hands of top bloke Oman and he immediately launched the ball downcourt.”)
