Simon Crosse began his rowing career with the London Rowing Club in 1950 while studying architecture. The highlight of his career came at the 1958 British Empire and Commonwealth Games, where he won the gold medal in the coxed fours for England alongside John Vigurs, Michael Beresford, Colin Porter, and the non-Olympian Richard Gabriel. Crosse represented Great Britain in that event at the 1960 Rome Olympics, but with an entirely different crew: Richard Knight, John M. Russell, John Tilbury, and Terrence Rosslyn-Smith. At the Games, they were eliminated in the round one repêchage.
This was Crosse’s last major international tournament, but he later put his architecture training to good use by revamping the boathouse of his club at the end of the 1960s and beginning of the 1970s. He was also involved with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
