Legendary Olympian Cathy Freeman has pledged her support for the Voice referendum and urged Australians to join her.
The proud Indigenous woman won the nation's heart when she claimed the gold medal in the womens' 400m race at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
And weeks out from the October 14 referendum she has used her platform to call on Australians to "open our hearts and change our future".
"I can't remember a time when change has felt so urgent, where momentum has been so strong," she said.
"We have the chance to be part of a moment that brings people together, to work hard for something that we can all believe in and right now each of us can be part of something that really matters."
In the video posted by the 'Yes' campaign, she encouraged the nation to "stand together" and show support to those who need it most.
"To recognise Indigenous peoples in our constitution for the very first time. To give our kids the very best start in life: an equal start in life," she said.
"I'm voting 'yes' and I am asking that all Australians do too. So please stand with me and write 'yes' on October 14."
Ms Freeman's community advocacy has included establishing the Cathy Freeman Foundation in 2007 to support the futures of children and their families in northern Australian communities.
The three-time Olympian, World Champion and Commonwealth Games gold medallist has been honoured for her achievements, including being named 1998 Australian of the Year.
