Mateship And A Burning Desire To Represent Your Country
Mick Colliss’s tale of mateship, creative thinking and sudoku will leave you breathless with laughter. Mick and his best mates travelled to India to take part in the International Sudoku Championships in India – even though they didn’t know how to play the game.
Mick is widely regarded as Australia’s best after dinner speaker/entertainer.He wanted to represent Australia, but didn’t have luck with rugby or any other sports or hobbies, until he found Sudoku. He didn’t know how to play, but that didn’t matter! Mick and three of his best mates formed the first Australian Sudoku Team and journeyed to the International Sudoku Championships in India. When Mick finally achieved his goal of representing his country, it wasn’t exactly what he expected! Mick is one of Australia’s best storytellers, many would say THE best.
Mick Colliss is an author, writer, sports commentator, emcee, guest speaker and modern day poet. He was also the vice captain of the first ever Australian Sudoku team. The team travelled to India to compete at the World Sudoku Championships. They didn’t know how to play, but that didn’t bother them. Determined to represent Australia at something, Mick had originally hoped for success at the sport of rugby. Unsuccessful, he then tried other sports. His run of luck continued until he finally discovered Sudoku. He and three of his best mates became “Australian champions” and were soon on a plane to India to compete at the International Sudoku Championships in India.
Mick did achieve the goal of representing his country even though it wasn’t exactly in the field or the way he expected it to occur. Mick’s is a laugh out loud true story about mateship, having a go and never giving up, no matter what the odds. It’s ideal for corporate, sports and school functions. There are already discussions about making a film of his story, with the concept being compared to films like The Castle.
