I would have to say Bob Beamon in the long jump in Mexico in 1968. It was unbelievable. I was young at the time of course, but even he was stunned at what he jumped - it was one of those freakish moments in sport. For days afterwards there were all sorts of professors, from mental to physical boffins, putting their findings together to try and work out how Beamon's talent came together so fantastically well in that one jump. But they simply said it was freakish - and it probably was. It was just incredible.
It's very difficult to come up with one. I would mention Mark Spitz, Ian Thorpe and of course, our own Olympic rower with five gold medals, Sir Steve Redgrave. Those three are in the top bracket for Olympic success, but if I have to single one out, I would probably go for Sir Steve Redgrave. Maybe, the one thing that separates him from the other two is that quote about shooting him if he was caught in a boat again! That came from a man who was spent, who had nothing left to give, yet of course, he did it all again. That took some courage.
I'll watch as much as I can on TV, but Super League is on of course and I've got work to do - and as you all know, work comes first. I was so fortunate; I applied for tickets three times and got the net result of... none! But I do have a friend who has tickets and has invited me to one day, at the main stadium for the athletics, which suits me fine. It's the early morning start and all I want to do is say 'I've been to the Olympics'. It's as simple as that.
Probably the ones I will be going to see on that day! But I have no idea what is on but this is more important for me to think that I have been part of the Olympics, to jostle with the crowd, to spend two-and-a-half hours getting into the Tube and spending another six trying to get home. I live near Tower Bridge and I have worked it out that I can probably get to the main stadium by walking most of it on the Embankment, although it would take some time. I have not decided whether to walk or cycle yet, but because someone told me there are 38 hostelries along that route, I'll probably walk!
Good I am sure, but I hope we find a few people from outside the inner circle, too. We know the athletes who are going to have the best chance of winning golds, the likes of Jessica Ennis, the swimmers, Mark Cavendish, Bradley Wiggins and the rest of the cyclists, but I just hope that we get two, three, five or maybe even 10 people who have come through from nowhere and haven't won any medals, when none of us knew them. That to me is more important. That proves to me that all the build-up, all the hard work and all the money that we have injected into it, has worked. If we only win medals from those we expected to, then we haven't improved. Those people who come from nowhere and win medals will be a great inspiration for every single kid out there!
I want the impact to encourage everybody to get off the streets and go and play sport. This is the twist though, because where do they go and play sport? It has cost millions and millions to put the Olympics on, so what we need now is the same amount of effort injected into our kids, our youngsters, enabling them to get involved in sport and keep the legacy going. I live in London and I know that everyone here will have to suffer financially. But I don't mind, providing that it's done. We have seen so many governments in the past who have taken away so much sport in school, playing fields here, there and everywhere, but for this lot, this is not just about Olympics 2012, this is about setting up something for any young child, anywhere in this country. It has been proved that if people are fit, playing sport, that they cost the government a lot less to keep them alive - and that means every sport will be part of a successful legacy. Let's hope that happens.
Well, obviously I have to go for the greatest sport on earth... rugby league! We've had rugby before but now the big question is would the game they bring in be rugby union or league? We brought the Sevens into the Commonwealth Games and I thought it was a great chance for the organisers here to say they will create a Sevens team and select them from union and league. Someone like Sam Tomkins is such a good player, he could be put into any rugby side, and there are more out there. I have to be honest and say that rugby league is probably a pipe dream, but I am sure the Olympics could come up with a rugby game that would be perfect.
Well, I'm somewhat biased because when I was younger, I just wanted to be the best, so therefore it would have to be the blue riband event - the 100m final! And trust me, there are times when I've had a curry that I know I can beat that Usain Bolt!
