I have to go British and say Sir Steve Redgrave. Michael Phelps has won eight gold's in one Olympics, which is pretty impressive, but I think Sir Steve has gone the distance. The Olympics come around once every four years and you have to make sure that you peak at the right time - however there is also all the stuff that happens in between. To be mentally tough over 20 years and to get five gold medals in five Olympics is just incredible. I burnt out after two and I can't imagine all the sacrifices and training he had to go through to keep him at the top of his game for that long. He is a very special athlete.
I was 15 and watching the Barcelona Olympics - I was at a time in my life where I was unsure of what I wanted to do as far as sport was concerned. I was playing a bit of badminton but was not on the British team. I was mesmerised by it all and a certain lady called Sally Gunnell running the 400m hurdles had me jumping up and down screaming with excitement - seeing her win her gold medal made me decide that I wanted to be an Olympic athlete. I turned around to my mum and said I am going to the Olympic Games.
I really want a legacy but part of me is not convinced. The Youth Sport Trust had the whole school sport partnerships going and had this great funding where we were setting up this network of schools that could use each other's resources. But then the money was all cut off. So two years before the Olympics the funding for school sport goes down to nothing. I know there have to be cuts but there should be something for school sports. We have all these schools out there trying to be part of 2012, but I think they are going to feel detached. I went around the Olympic Park and it is just an amazing stadium. But you walk five minutes out and around the area and how are those people going to feel attached to the Olympic Stadium? It is all well enough saying we are going to rejuvenate the area but an amazing stadium is not going to do that. It's about setting up loads of clubs, loads of networks and grass roots all around that area - and around the whole country too. One amazing stadium in what is seen as an impoverished area is not going to do it.
I think we will do pretty much the same as we did in Beijing. To win 19 gold medals again is a lot to ask for but I think we will do it. In the test events we have had some amazing results. I think we have the big names who will medal but what I love about the Olympic s are the surprises - there is always someone who rises to the challenge and they are the ones who the Olympics are all about.
Well the badminton of course - I'll probably be twitching a lot and wishing I was out there! I'm a bit of a sports geek so I am looking forward to everything. I just want to sit in an armchair and have all these screens and watch them all! I don't know the rules for half these sports but if someone British is competing then I will be cheering them on.
Squash. My friend Nick Mathew is ranked as number one in the world, and I think we have a world number two as well. I have no idea why it is not an Olympic Sport - I would much prefer to see squash in the Olympics than golf!
I'm restricted by height so that rules a lot of events out - no volleyball, long jump or high jump. I'm quite quick but only at 60m so 100m is out too. I used to throw the javelin really well and I also used to be a good hockey player so probably hockey. Although with 7s rugby being introduced in 2016, maybe I could play on the wing!
