Mitch Georgiades wins Mark of the Year at the Brownlow awards

·

Greek Australian young gun and Port Adelaide FC player, Mitch Georgiades, has been named the winner of the 2022 Four’N Twenty Mark of the Year at the Brownlow awards on Sunday night.

Georgiades won the award for his actions in Round Sixteen of the 2022 Toyota Premiership Season when he got up on the shoulder of Fremantle opponent Brennan Cox and brought the mark down.

Georgiades beat out fellow finalists GWS Giants’ Toby Greene and Melbourne’s Charlie Spargo.

At a ceremony where the 20-year-old accepted the Alex Jesaulenko Medal and his prize of $10,000, Georgiades laughed as he remembered the hanger.

“I was pretty tired at that stage – think it was the end of the quarter,” he said. “I saw the ball come in and just had a jump – lucky it just stuck… Unfortunately missed the goal, but that’s it.”

Georgiades had two entries in this year’s Mark of the Year race, which is voted for by fans.

He’s the second Port Adelaide player to take home the title, after Chad Wingard won back in 2014.
