Paddy Mills – Indigenous Pioneer
Grandad what did you do during lockdown? I watched Joe Ingles present the flag to Patty Mills on endless loop.
Congratulations to legend Boomer & NBA Star Patty Mills announced as the first ever Indigenous Olympic Flag Bearer alongside Cate Campbell. Mills struggled to put into words his gratitude as a proud Kokatha, Naghiralgal and Dauareb-Meriam man leading the country’s Olympians telling the ABC:
“I’m just thankful for all the support up unto this moment … It’s something I won’t be able to put into words what I am feeling right now.”
Patty Mills is a gentleman & magnificent representative of his family, country and his Aboriginal & Torres Strait Island people.
Tokyo Olympics 2020 will be his 4th Olympics
