Recently retired Sydney Swans AFL player and anti-racism advocate Adam Goodes is the punters pick for tomorrow’s Human Rights Medal award, according to bookmaker William Hill.
Goodes has been well backed and currently holds 40% of the entire book, but it’s Muslim leader and anti-domestic violence campaigner Maha Krayem Abdo who remains the $3.00 favourite.
The first Aboriginal psychologist to graduate in Australia, Professor Pat Dudgeon, is second in betting at $3.50, while journalist Peter Greste and national director of Australian Marriage Equality, Rodney Croome, round the amazing field of Australians at a respectable $5 each.
“It’s one of the greatest fields ever assembled for an award. While there can only be one medal winner, each of them have made an unforgettable contribution to the advancement of human rights in Australia. ” William Hill spokesman Tim Ashworth said.
