Losing five of your team members so that you are down to a one-man band is hard for any team. But how about if you are only 7 years old and this is your first World Finals?
This young OMer showed
tremendous poise and talent when performing in front of a packed house as a one man show. He wowed the audience with his courage, humor, problem-solving, and
There was not a dry eye in the house as he performed every character in the skit. He was brave and did such a good job!
He embodies the OM spirit and we can see this is just the beginning of a long and creative Odyssey.

Problem 5: Life is a Circus!
Division I
This team name is the 7 Musketeers . . . but they came with only 2 team members.
They had 4 or 5 Circus Acts and 1 child did them all. He changed costumes for every act with a smile on his face and contagious enthusiasm. The other child acted as the ringmaster and kept the
audience entertained. One cardboard cut-out was the only other team “member” visible. The “Two Musketeers” showed the Odyssey spirit of creativity, perseverance, and resilience. Fantastic performance!
