Adam Goodes is a professional Australian rules football player with the Sydney Swans in the Australian Football League (AFL). Goodes holds an elite place in AFL/VFL history as a dual Brownlow Medallist, dual premiership player, four-time All-Australian and member of the Indigenous Team of the Century and has represented Australia in the International Rules Series.

Adam is well known for his Indigenous Australian heritage, and is prominently involved and associated with several Indigenous sport and community programs.
