Olympic gold medallist Sally Pearson has caused a stir, wearing a low-cut purple dress at the Sport Australia Hall of Fame dinner at Melbourne’s Crown Casino.
The Olympic and world champion hurdler left little to the imagination in the revealing outfit that showed off her ripped midriff.
Pearson is a finalist for ‘The Don’ award for her performance at the London Games along with fellow Olympians Tom Slingsby, Anna Meares and Jessica Fox.
Paralympian swimmer Jacqueline Freney and surfer Stephanie Gilmore are also finalists.
The award, named after Sir Donald Bradman, honours the Australian athlete who has inspired the nation the most with their achievements over the past year.
An induction ceremony will also take place for eight sporting luminaries who will enter the Hall of Fame.
Rugby league immortal Andrew Johns will be inducted, along with rugby league super coach Wayne Bennett, cricket great Adam Gilchrist, former VFL player and international cricketer Laurie Nash, Wallabies great Stephen Larkham, ‘Oarsome Foursome’ rower James Tomkins and Olympic cyclist Kathy Watt as well as sports administrator Malcolm Speed.
