Posted:Oli is a guy I met at college, one day I saw him spinning some pink fluffly balls on string around. Naturally Iasked him what the hell he was doing, 'spinning poi' he replied. I thought I'd give this poi thing a go, not realising how bloody difficult it was going to be. I then spent the next few months pestering Oli to show me new things, now realising how annoying I must've been. well, 2 or so years on I log on to HOP and find that he's become some type of Poi god... practically EVERYONE in the world knows him! I'd just like to say how priveliged I feel to have been taught by a celebrity!! Any stories of Oli are welcomed...

Posted:That was a fun game!!

He handled Half a crate of beer, AND mechs juggling suitcase on him, as well as a tower o juggling balls balanced on his temple... Oh, Such fun!

Oli Rocks! Especially at five in the morning when Him and Duballstar are pretending to be cows and coming into the place where the sleeping is happening...

*raises Glass* to Oli, for providing us with the best game of Buckaroo ever played! And being the only sleeping Winner I have ever known!!

Posted:Oli makes socks sexy. He is the only one who can do this. Quite a talent. Yum.

I also have the impression he likes strawberries soaked in Baileys, with a little chocolate on the side... ( go on, feed him this at every opportunity !!!)

Little know factoid: He has been seen kissing 2bags on the nose, while fluttering plastic pink pom poms ( but that *may* have been a hallucination of mine, the night was all a bit blurry...)
