"The 2012 London Olympic Games fostered a generation of hope. I witnessed women participating for the very first time, representing every nation."
"I graduated a the top of my class in the '84 Olympic Games I won a gold medal."
"The Olympic Games must not be an end in itself, they must be a means of creating a vast programme of physical education and sports competitions for all young people."
"We live in a world where sports have the potential to bridge the gap between racism, sexism and discrimination. The 2012 Olympic Games was a great start but hopefully what these games taught us is that if women are given an opportunity on an equal playing field the possibilities for women are endless."
