Ablett wins Brownlow medal

6:52 am on 22 September 2009

The Geelong Aussie rules star Gary Ablett was last night presented with the sport's highest individual honour, the Brownlow Medal.

The 25-year-old midfield star was a popular recipient of the award, polling eight more votes than a former winner, Carlton's captain Chris Judd.

Ablett, whose father Gary Ablett Senior was a superstar, now has to focus on Saturday's Grand Final against St Kilda.
