What is the Brownlow Medal?
The Brownlow Medal is an annual Australian football award given to the player who has been judged to have played the best single game of the season. The award was first given in 1924 and is named after Charles Brownlow, a former player, and administrator for the Victorian Football League (VFL).
The Brownlow Medal is one of the most prestigious awards in Australian football. It is voted on by the media and is not restricted to any particular position on the field. The award is usually given to the best player of the year, although there have been exceptions.
Some of the most memorable Brownlow Medal moments include Gary Ablett’s record-breaking performance in 2007, which led to him being awarded a three-time Brownlow Medal. Wayne Carey also holds the record for most consecutive votes (11) at the Brownlow Medal, which he achieved between 1994 and 1996.
