Goolime is a member of the Limers. He joined the team at the start of Marble League 2017, replacing former member of the Limers, Jellime.

History

Goolime joined the Limers after Marble League 2016. He replaced Jellime who left the to team to work as an adviser to the Syndesmarble.

The Limers started off the Marble League 2017 Qualifiers poorly, gaining no points in the first event. However, the team managed to gain enough points in the following thee events to qualify for Marble League 2017, including 4 points for Goolime in the Sand Race. The team managed to gain points in all events under the new point system. They started off poorly, coming in the bottom half in the first two events with Goolime coming 9th in Event 2, the Long Jump. They managed to gain a silver medal in Event 3, Fidget Spinner Collision. They then managed to finish in the top half of the next four events, gaining a bronze medal in Event 6, the Relay Run, putting them into 2nd place overall. However, they had a poor second half of the season and ended up finishing in 10th place overall. This included a 13th-place finish for Goolime in the High Jump. The team were still happy with their results.

Once again, the team went into rigorous training over the off-season. The team were invited to the Marble League 2018 Qualifiers draw and were surprised to see that their rivals from the times of the Fruit Circuit, the Raspberry Racers, had also qualified, and they both ended up in the same qualification group. The Limers managed to beat their rivals in the Curling and Halfpipe events. However, an 8th-place finish for Goolime in the Snow Race meant the Limers qualified for Marble League 2018 in 4th, behind the Raspberry Racers who qualified in 2nd, with only 1 point between them. The team had another poor season, gaining no points in one quarter of the events, and only managed top half finishes in one third of the events. Goolime earned 4 points by coming 12th in Speed Skating.

By the end of Event 7, the Snow Rally, the team had been in last place after all but three of the events. It was clear they would not win the competition, but the Limers were still determined to not come last. Sublime was selected to take part in Event 8, the Snowboard Cross. He came second in his heat, behind Rozzy of the Raspberry Racers, and then won the final, gaining the team their first gold medal of any Marble League event.

The team managed to finish in the middle of the pack in all the remaining events, except for a last place finish in Event 11, Ice Hockey. Goolime came 10th in the final event, the Sand Mogul Race. The Limers managed to finish in 14th, finishing ahead of fellow Fruit Circuit team Mellow Yellow on medals. However, the team was more concerned with the fact that their rivals, the Raspberry Racers, had beaten them in all but two events.

The Limers continued to face their rivals in the offseason, coming 2nd and beating the Raspberry Racers in the 100 Meter Water Race and coming 4th and losing to them in the Amazing Maze Marble Race. The Limers had put in a bid to host Marble League 2019, but lost to the Oceanics. This, along with the losses to their rivals, led to a drop in morale.

The team had a great start to the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers, coming in second after the second event. However, they only managed to come 12th in the third event, and a 19th-place finish in the Underwater Race and the Chocolatiers' 4th-place finish meant the Limers failed to qualify for Marble League 2019 by three points. Their time in the qualifiers was also soured by Limers fans throwing debris onto the track during the Relay Race to allegedly try and disrupt the Raspberry Racers. Team Primary did not finish the race and blamed it on the Limers fans' debris.

When the Marble League Showdown 2019 was announced, the Limers immediately started training again, trying to rebuild emotionally, physically and mentally, once again returning to the cliffs of Tartufo to train. They came into the Showdown under immense pressure after their rivals, the Raspberry Racers, had won Marble League 2019.

The Showdown went poorly for the Limers, coming last in two of the events, including Goolime's last place finish in the Sand Rally, and staying in last place overall throughout the entire competition. When their failure to qualify for the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers was confirmed during the final event, Balancing, some Limers fans stormed onto the field in anger and the team had to be escorted off the pitch by security for their safety.

The team was visibly devastated at this point. They were in their worst shape and would have to miss out on Marble League 2020. The resilience of the team came through when they accepted an invite to Marbula One 2019/20, choosing Sublime and Limelime to represent them.[1]
