During the London Olympic Games opening ceremony young athletes aged between 16 and 19 took turns with the Olympic Torch as they ran around the Olympic stadium.
These young athletes, nominated by various famous British athletes from the past, symbolised the passing of the mantle from the past to the future.
This was reminiscent of the dinner on the final night at the recent William Glasser Association International conference in Los Angeles.
