Sam Crowter

Ambassador

Throughout my athletics I have competed in numerous events across Great Britain and abroad. I have picked up numerous titles over the years including titles from indoor competing such as South West indoor champion to county champion in pole vault (outdoor) and over 200 metres. I also hold Exeter Harriers club record for the Octathlon and am part of the senior team. I am a former assistant manager to the Exeter Harriers sports hall team, during which I would advise the junior athletes about pointers on how to improve or demonstrate certain events or parts of events should be done as well as general assistance in managing the team. This did result in a significant improvement by the team in the rankings of the league during each season of being the assistant manager and increasing the medal haul. This has led to managing sports hall teams in higher level local sports hall competitions, which have then gone on to compete in the highest sports hall competition in the UK.
I have also been guide running during my athletics career. I have been a guide runner for numerous people, people who have been getting into fitness to high level people who have competed for Great Britain in the Paralympics.
Outside of athletics I have also completed obstacle courses throughout England, mainly in Sussex and Gloucestershire. I do obstacle courses to help with my fitness for athletics, although the distances I compete in are much shorter in athletics than obstacle courses. I look forward to completing more obstacle courses in the future as the community atmosphere is fantastic with everyone talking to and helping everyone else.
I am also a keen park runner, I regularly do parkruns to help with my fitness and to meet new people.
As part of my work experience I worked at a local school in the PE department assisting with daily lessons and the after school athletics club.
During my athletics career I have assisted the South West Athletics Academy at portable track events, most of which are in Exeter but have included parts of England like Liverpool, London and Lincoln where we had an Olympic sprinter run on the track against a red arrow. This has involved meeting high level athletes and to meet a diverse range of people and encouraging them to try new things and generally enjoy sport. I also continue to assist at SWAA training session at my local track catering for both able bodied and disabled athletes.
I also like to go to watch high level competitions such as the World Indoor Championships to enjoy the atmosphere and inspire me to work towards competing in higher level competitions in athletics. In October I will be going to the OCR World Championships to see my father run and then we are saving up for the Olympics in Tokyo in 2020 if my brothers partner continues to represent Great Britain in the 400 relay.
