This is Francis and he loves his hoola hoop! He was introduced to hoola hoops by his cousin Graham who was crazy about them. At first Francis rejected them outright, saying to Graham that hoola hoops were for kittens and foolish people who wanted a slim waste. But eventually Francis gave it a go after much cajoling from Graham to try it at least once. Well, the rest, as they say, is history. Absolutely besotted with the electric blue hoop from his very first try, Francis is now a hoola hoop champion for his district and intends to try out for the state championships next Spring. His regime is simple; practise the art of hoola hooping for three hours a day followed by plenty of milk, fish and rest. You can find Francis and his hoola hoop here.
