2021 AFL Grand Final Sprint

September 26th, 2021 · Comments Off on 2021 AFL Grand Final Sprint · AFL

The AFL Grand Final, played in Perth this year, again hosted the player sprint race. It was held at quarter time, with only West Coast and Fremantle players participating, as WA’s strict border rules made it impossible for all clubs to get involved.

The race course was also different this year, as it was held around the 50m arc at one end of the ground, replicating the smile of the sponsor Colgate. The first three to finish were from the West Coast Eagles, with Josh Rotham just pipping Jack Petruccelle with Liam Ryan was third.

This event has been held since 1979. See more about the history of the Grand Final Sprint.
