Richmond’s Dustin Martin becomes first player to win three Norm Smith medals

CHAMPION midfielder Dustin Martin rose to an unmatched level of greatness, becoming the first player to win a third Norm Smith medal

The superstar from Richmond, who led his team’s third prime minister in four seasons, established himself as the best player in the modern game’s final with four goals and 21 disposals against Geelong

The Tigers were desperate for a goal and their superstar obliges them with a simply superb effort that only Dustin Martin could stave off

After matching the exploits of two Norm Smith medalists Gary Ayres, Andrew McLeod and Luke Hodge last season, Martin joined a club all his own at the Gabba on Saturday night

A player of his generation, he became a three-time Premier and was awarded the Norm Smith Medal by Byron Pickett, winner of Port Adelaide in 2004

He was judged best on the pitch by a panel of judges including Australian Football Hall of Fame legends Leigh Matthews and Malcolm Blight

The defining quality of Martin’s game was his ability to come out on top in battle when the Tigers needed it most, which is what made him arguably his best performance in a decider

He had 29 possessions and two goals against Adelaide in 2017, and 22 and four against the rout of Greater Western Sydney last year

Martin finished with 21 assignments and four brilliant goals as the Tigers corrected a 23 point deficit in the second term to win by 31 points

Dustin Martin practically sealed a third Norm Smith medal after an incredible goal that brought Richmond one step closer
