A few hours before the first jump, star-footy players went to the banks of the Yarra River for the annual longest kick competition.

The event was previously organized by the St Kilda champion, who died in a car accident three weeks ago, and Hawthorn great Jason Dunstall.

Harris went to the event with Frawley in mind.

"Won't be the same without Spud today, but will definitely roast a torpedo (kick) kick for him in the longest kick today at 10.30 a.m.

And & # 39; roasts a torp & # 39; Harris did.

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

& # 39; That was Spud for you, & # 39; Harris posted on Twitter, along with a short clip showing her monster kick.

Twitter users responded quickly to the sincere tribute.

& # 39; He would have absolutely loved that, imagine his reaction, it would have been priceless. A huge loss, and not just for the footy world, & a fan responded.

& # 39; Fantastic sign of respect to dedicate your kick to Spud. He would be proud, & another person added.

For a number of years, Frawley had organized the annual longest kick competition before his tragic death earlier this month.

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," Dunstall said.

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

An image of Harris caught in a game against the Western Bulldogs gathered so many offensive comments from trolls on social media that 7AFL removed his post in January.

The photo became iconic after she walked around the internet in front of the corner of the photo in an incident that highlighted sexism in sport.

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

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.

After his tragic death, Frawley & # 39; s sorrowful wife Anita and his daughters Chelsea, Keeley and Danielle (pictured together) remembered him as a loving father, husband, and friend

Harris was also photographed with Frawley during the longest kick competition of 2018, which she also shared prior to the 2019 event.

After his tragic death, Frawley & # 39; s sorrowful wife Anita and his daughters remembered him as a loving father, husband, and friend in a moving video clip.

The wife and daughters of AFL great-grand Chelsea, Keeley and Danielle said goodbye to him more than a week after his ute hit a tree in Victoria land.

& # 39; He was my absolute idol, & # 39; said Chelsea through tears in an emotional video tribute broadcast at his funeral on Wednesday.

& # 39; I know he is my father, but he was also my best friend. And I don't think many daughters can have that relationship with their parents.

Keeley said: & # 39; He's not really gone, I can just look in the mirror and see him in me. & # 39;

Frawley was a leading mental health awareness champion and had been open about his fight against depression in the past.

But the 56-year-old's mental health deteriorated in the days before his tragic death near Ballarat, not far from the potato farm where he grew up.

Hand in hand, Danny & # 39; s daughters reminded him of his affection and dedication to his family.

& # 39; He always comes in and says: & # 39; I love you to the moon and back, Danielle & # 39;, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; And he would always hug you a bit too long. I just wish he were here now so he could give me one of those uncomfortably long hugs. & # 39;
