The AFL Grand Final returned to the MCG in 2022. The sprint was held at quarter time, with eight finalists (players from all 18 clubs participated in the qualifying heats).
The race was held around the 50m arc at one end of the ground, replicating the smile of the sponsor Colgate. The event was won by Richmond’s Hugo Ralphsmith.
The Grand Final Sprint has been held since 1979. See more about the history of the Grand Final Sprint.
