It's original premise was for someone to win a trip to the 1988 Summer Olympics hence the title.

I only know who Maxwell is cause I  read the Zlatan autobiography, and he just seemed to be at the same clubs as him. I have no idea who he is thoughConfused. And to find he's allegedly the most decorated player in the world.
