I'm gonna tell the story. This is something I do in my spare time: I draw freehand circles. And then I found out there's a world championship in it in Vegas every year. I didn't get to go this year 'cause my mom was sick. But uh, I normally go every year. It's like winning a Masters - once you win, you automatically get invited back every year. So this year I didn’t really practice much. Cause I had a tough year, but I will rip one circle just for the class,
He narrated to his students.

In June 2006, a student of his asked if he could film Overwijk as he draws a perfect freehand circle on the blackboard. It was posted on their school’s website and went viral six months later.
