SAM BRAMHAM, OAM
Disability and Sex
Bramham certainly made a splash when he broke the 100m butterfly world record at the 2004 Athens Paralympics, not to mention cheekily convincing an American journalist that his leg had been mauled off by a kangaroo. This sense of humour and drive carried over to the 2008 Paralympics in Beijing, where he again took gold. In 2009, Bramham was awarded the medal of the Order of Australia for his role in the 2008 Paralympics, and in 2014 he not only competed in Big Brother Australia, but penned his autobiography; Three-Quarter Man: Pranks, Passion and Paralympics.
Bramham has had regular radio spots on SEN, ABC, SYN FM, Vision Australia and JOY FM, talking both able-bodied and disabled sport. His irreverent sense of humour and positive attitude are in perfect alignment with a refreshed and progressive SEXPO for the future.
