Billed as one of Australia's best after dinner speakers Mick Colliss pinches himself when speaking at events alongside his sporting heroes like John Eales, Alissa Camplin and Steve Bradbury.
And while he's not a star athlete or gold medallist, there are many lessons that can be learned from his story.
To watch him draw an audience in with his incredible true, tall tales is to watch a master storyteller.
He always dreamed of representing Australia and did so.
The fact it was in a field he knew nothing about is the stuff of legend.
Mick Colliss' tale of mateship, creative thinking and Sudoku will leave you breathless with laughter.
