"The Great thing about sport and the great thing about the Olympic movement and Olympic sport is actually is a metaphor for life. It’s not about passion. It’s not about chance. It’s not about circumstance. It’s about hard work. It’s about diligence. It’s about great coaching. It’s about friendship and respect." - Lord Sebastion Coe English Mid Distance Runner and Gold Medalist 80 & 84 Games. Led bid to host the games in London. Chairman of the 2012 Olympics in London.
