Sport and health are so important to our nation that they deserve to be right at the front of people’s minds.  (Daley Thompson Quotes) If you’re not in it you can’t win it  (Daley Thompson Quotes) Even if you’ve been involved in a World Cup, the Olympics is huge. Only the Games has the power to change communities  (Daley Thompson Quotes) I tend to eat vegetables only when I’m with the kids and the rest of the time, I’m a bit slack. But, I am weight-conscious, so I concentrate on avoiding junk food  (Daley Thompson Quotes) If you work hard in real life, people tend to get in your way - either from inertia or prejudice - and they stop you achieving things. It’s the worst thing about real life compared with sports, where you generally get what you deserve: if you’re the fastest guy, you win; there are no other games being played  (Daley Thompson Quotes) During a photo-call with fellow Olympic gold medallist Duncan Goodhew- Pity Steve Ovett didn’t show up. Then we could have had the good, the bald and the ugly  (Daley Thompson Quotes) I was in the doldrums for a while after my athletics career ended in 1992. I spent six to eight hours a day training, for 18 years, and it took a long time to get over the regret that I wasn’t competing in major championships any more. All I ever wanted to be was the best. But I find new projects and I keep things in perspective  (Daley Thompson Quotes) I think one of the things about being a good coach is to recognise when you have given all that you can. In fact there should be some sort of unspoken law that says that a coach cannot have anyone for three or four years - if you have not passed on most of the stuff you know in that time, then you are not doing a good job  (Daley Thompson Quotes) I have the mentality of a winner. I first went to the Olympic Games when I was 17, three weeks after my O-levels, and I remember sitting in a dining-hall filled with the world’s best athletes  (Daley Thompson Quotes) Retiring was hard. I’d spent 15 years doing something I loved, but when you get older everything seems to go. When I started spending too long with the physio and the doctor, I knew it was time to call it a day. But I had no preparation for being retired and I didn’t know what to do  (Daley Thompson Quotes) Los Angeles was great fun because it was the polar opposite of Moscow in 1980. It was sunny and bright, lots of colours around, whereas Moscow was dark and oppressive  (Daley Thompson Quotes) People don’t want to serve apprenticeships any more. Kids expect to be paid and treated really well and all that guff before they’ve achieved anything. It doesn’t work like that. You have to spend five or six years being relatively rubbish and put up with it. For that you don’t deserve to be getting lottery money  (Daley Thompson Quotes) I’m obsessive. I want to know the answer to how good I am. Most people aren’t.  (Daley Thompson Quotes) Most people doing the decathlon these days are quite boring, so people don’t relate to them  (Daley Thompson Quotes) It’s good to be difficult to know. Too many people are too easy to know.  (Daley Thompson Quotes) Kids have been let down by adults - we’ve tried to give them too much, we’ve tried not to impose discipline. We’ve tried to make their lives easier and, in doing so, we’ve taken something away from them. Kids like boundaries, they also like to be pushed, need to learn what failure is all about, need guidance.  (Daley Thompson Quotes) Being a decathlete is like having ten girlfriends. You have to love them all, and you can’t afford losing one.  (Daley Thompson Quotes) If you don’t want to grow old, then slow down the slowing down process  (Daley Thompson Quotes) I am an education ambassador, mainly working with schools  (Daley Thompson Quotes) Sport fosters many things that are good; teamwork and leadership  (Daley Thompson Quotes) The stopwatch doesn’t lie. The tape measure doesn’t lie  (Daley Thompson Quotes) For kids it’s natural to be competitive  (Daley Thompson Quotes) I don’t even have my own computer  (Daley Thompson Quotes) The only limitations are mental. The guy who thinks positively will win  (Daley Thompson Quotes) I am only about winning and getting better  (Daley Thompson Quotes) In my heart of hearts my motivation would always have been to be the best, and I think that athletics is probably what I was built for  (Daley Thompson Quotes) Sometimes you have to resist working on your strengths in favour of your weaknesses. The decathlon requires a wide range of skills  (Daley Thompson Quotes) If you don’t want to grow old, then slow down the slowing down process  (Daley Thompson Quotes) What used to drive me was the fact that I wanted to be better than everybody at something. One of my best qualities is that I used whatever other people found to be an adverse thing to be a positive thing for myself  (Daley Thompson Quotes) When I lost my decathlon world record I took it like a man. I only cried for ten hours  (Daley Thompson Quotes)
