Maha Krayem Abdo Favourite to Beat Adam Goodes to Human Rights Medal
Maha Krayem Abdo, is the favourite to take out this year’s Human Rights Medal on December 10th, according to leading online bookmaker William Hill.
Abdo heads the extraordinary field at the $3 mark, while recently retired AFL footballer and former Australian of the Year, Adam Goodes, is ranked a $4.50 shot for his continued positive influence in speaking out against racism on and off the field.
The first Aboriginal psychologist to graduate in Australia, Professor Pat Dudgeon is second in betting at $3.50, while journalist Peter Greste and national director of Australian Marriage Equality, Rodney Croome, round the amazing field of Australians at a respectable $5 each.
“If one thing is a sure, it’s that there will be nothing but cheers and applause for each of these exceptional Australians,” William Hill spokesperson Tim Ashworth said.
“If anyone dares to boo or jeer people of such resolve who are giving their all for the betterment of others, then they should be taking a good hard look at themselves. They are all winners in my eyes.”
