### Abstract

We present two applications of Ball's extension theorem. First we observe that Ball's extension theorem, together with the recent solution of Ball's Markov type 2 problem due to Naor, Peres, Schramm and Sheffield, imply a generalization, and an alternative proof of, the Johnson-Lindenstrauss extension theorem. Second, we prove that the distortion required to embed the integer lattice {0,1,..., m} ^{n}, equipped with the ℓ _{p} ^{n} metric, in any 2-uniformly convex Banach space is of order min {n ^{1/2-1/p}, m ^{1-2/p}}.
