Sam was amusing and highly entertaining. Having sat through over twenty similar occasions, this is the first time I can remember the audience actually laughing and enjoying the words of the guest speaker. Jan Mann, Event Coordinator, Wellington Secondary College
Sam Bramham certainly entered Paralympic competition with a splash when he broke the 100m Butterfly world record at the 2004 Athens Paralympic, his first games at the age of 16. He made international headlines for lying to an American journalist that his leg was mauled off by a kangaroo.
Because of his success and personality, Sam is media friendly and a professionally trained motivational public speaker- and has spoken to schools, sports groups/clubs, businesses and councils offering support, advice, inspiration, disability awareness and goal setting techniques used by both the Olympic and Paralympic teams, all tied in with his personal experiences. He has had regular radio spots on SEN, ABC, SYN FM, Vision Australia and JOY FM, talking both able bodied and disabled sport.
In August 2014, Sam released his autobiography ‘Three-Quarter Man: Pranks, Passion and Paralympics’ through Affirm Press.
Sam was a contestant on Big Brother Australia 2014. He was the sixth housemate to be evicted.
