2022 Australian of the Year

   - Dylan Alcott



Congratulations to Australian of the Year 2022, Dylan Alcott.

As a teenager, tennis player Dylan Alcott was bullied over his disability and 'dreaded being in a wheelchair'.

Now 31, Dylan has made history as the first man to achieve a Golden Slam, using his success on the tennis court to reshape perceptions around disability through the Dylan Alcott Foundation, Get Skilled Access and AbilityFest — Australia's first accessible and fully inclusive music festival.

'It may shock a lot of people but the thing I am proudest of now is my disability and I love it.'
