• Australia's greatest Indigenous sports stars

Kyah Simon

Female soccer players don't get much recognition but Kyah Simon is changing that. Playing both in the W-League domestically and the Women's Premier Soccer League Elite in the US, the striker has also made a name for herself in the national team. In 2011 she became the first Indigenous Australian to score a goal in a World Cup.

    Whew, just for a moment I thought the Big Fulla missed out too, but he was there and just as well. It ain't a list without Big Artie. I agree with Lumwana Chris tho. No Polly Farmer or Sid Jackson and from league, no John "Chicka" Ferguson and what about the "Black Flash", Larry Corowa? I think they tried too hard to get as many sports on the list instead of aiming for the best sports people.

    Totally agree with Lumwana Chris! Prolly Farmer changed the game of AFL. To not have him in there is a travesty! BTW Cyril Rioli would be a good inclusion.
