13. LYDIA WILLIAMS

Matildas and Arsenal goalkeeper Lydia Williams’  jetsetting life as a professional athlete is a far call from the barefoot young Lydia from the outback who played in the red dirt, had pet kangaroos and a close connection to her indigenous culture. Lydia talks to Sam Squiers about her fascinating upbringing, racism and discrimination, the heartbreaking loss of her father and the massive shift in the women’s game.
