Richard Champion has had a football career spanning 14 years, including 10 years with the Brisbane Bears / Lions. Qualifying for entry to the AFL’s prestigious 200 Club at the conclusion of his career, Richard Champion won lavish praise from coach Leigh Matthews.
He was awarded Brisbane Lions Life Membership at the end of the 2000 season for his 10 years of loyal service to the club. Richard has a multi-talented personality, always prominent in the club’s off-field activities and in 1998 won an AFL Talent Show on Network Seven for his marvelous impersonation of Jimmy Barnes. That singing talent was put to good use when Champs competed in the popular Channel Seven program “It Takes Two”.
