The Storm star is not the kind of player who seeks the limelight, let along the highlight reel, and points out that the only reason he had to take off in last week's game was to clear a player on the ground, not to add flourish to the finish.
It looked spectacular enough without the embellishment. With Nick Cotric making the error in his in-goal area and the Storm already on an early roll, Olam saw the ball pop up and leapt over teammate Ryan Papenhuyzen, who had put in the initial kick.
