Interesting Facts:

  • He made international headlines for lying to an American journalist that his leg was mauled off by a kangaroo
  • He was also briefly detained by police in 2009 for faking a shark attack, with the help of McDonalds tomato sauce, which resulted in evacuating the whole of Merimbula family beach in NSW
  • 2014 8th evictee of Channel Nines 'Big Brother'
  • 2017 first one legged contestant on Channel Nines 'Australia Ninja Warrier'


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.

Affirm Press published an autobiography about Sam called "Three Quarter Man", which intimately details his upbringing, his mischief, success and death of close friend and fellow Paralympian, Alex 'Shaky' Harris, whom committed suicide in 2008.
