‘We’re overlooked’: Why aren’t some of our best athletes in the Sporting Hall of Fame?

Liz Cambage threatened to boycott the Games on Instagram over the alleged “whitewashing” of two promotional shoots involving the Australian Olympic team.

“I admire what Liz Cambage said,” this Indigenous athlete says, “but it is easier for her, from America, where she is surrounded by famous black athletes, and a strong movement for black people. Here, we are nearly invisible, have no mention in the Constitution, and are not recognised in a mostly white world. If I said what she said, from here, I would be torn apart by mainstream and social media , and it is not just worth it.”
