"We have so much to learn from young people and they have so much to contribute. They can help us identify the challenges they face and understand more about the fast-paced world that they live in. The young people of today face many pressures and there are many distractions which may lead them away from a life of sport. It is imperative that we understand these distractions and realise what tools we can utilise to ensure that these young people turn towards, and not away from, sport" - Britain's Sebastian Coe after chairing the first Association of National Olympic Committees Youth Working Group in London
"When I walked into the national team, he was my first captain. I learnt a lot by looking at him, and by what he is doing on and off the field - the way he handles situations. He's been tremendous for us in the past 15 years and I am very thankful to him." Angelo Mathews
