Nicky Winmar’s unmatched and unparalleled story is one that is known across the entire nation. Now, his tale has taken on a new form to further immortalise his name into Australian sporting history.
Winmar’s highly anticipated memoir Nicky Winmar: My Story, co-authored Matthew Hardy, is as powerful as it is moving, delving into the intricacies and never-before-told aspects of the proud Noongar man’s life from the football field and beyond.
Initiated by Marcus Windhager's request for a copy of the gripping read, the St Kilda legend dropped past his old club as part of the club’s Open Training session last week to give all six of the club’s Indigenous men’s players a copy of his new book.
Released in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of Winmar's generation defining stand against racism at Victoria Park, the memoir chronicles the pain, adversity and triumph of how a bush kid from Pingelly become an AFL legend and icon of our great game.
A story unlike any other that simply cannot be missed.
Nicky Winmar: My Story is available now through all good booksellers or for order online.
