AFLW star Tayla Harris showed her remarkable kick skills as she started the ball more than 60 meters in pre-match festivities prior to the AFL Grand Final.

Just a few hours away from the GWS Giants competing against Richmond Tigers, star footy players took on the banks of the Yarra River for the annual longest kick competition.

Harris, 22, showed her male counterparts as she easily kicked the ball 61.5 meters across the river. West Coast Eagles star Josh Kennedy watched Harris's point with disbelief.

Harris used the Grand Final day to pay tribute to football legend Danny Frawley, who died two weeks ago.

& # 39; Will not be the same without Spud today, but will certainly equip him a bastard in the @FOXFOOTY longest kick today at 10.30 am, & # 39; she tweeted.

Before his death earlier in September, Frawley had organized the annual longest kick competition.

Harris finished third in the match behind Clayton Oliver in Melbourne, who kicked a 66.8 meter torpedo and Adelaide & Brodie Smith at 66 meters.

& # 39; Do you know what is best about that kick? Right now another 10 guys are going "oh my god, we're in trouble," Fox commentator and hawthorn legend Jason Dunstall joked.

& # 39; Yes, it wasn't too bad, & # 39; Harris said.

Earlier this month, Harris & # 39; famous air kick was immortalized with a bronze statue unveiled in Melbourne.

A photo of the kick was the target of online trolls who made sexist remarks and gave rise to a debate about female sports competitors who were subjected to such treatment.

Harris said she was humiliated by the 3.3-meter-high statue that was unveiled on Federation Square but does not yet have a permanent home.

The image of Harris, captured in a game against the Western Bulldogs, gathered so many offensive comments on social media that 7AFL removed his position in January.
