From UK Sport:

‘On presenting the Elite Coach class of 2008 with their certificates, Jurgen Grobler, Head Coach to the victorious men’s four in Beijing as well as the gold medal winning British boats from the previous four Olympic Games, said:

“It is fantastic to see new faces each year at the World Class Coaching Conference as more and more young British coaches join the high performance system.

“I congratulate this Elite Coach group on their achievement. Having attended five Olympic Games as part of Team GB, I can tell you it is getting better every year and now we look forward to London 2012.

“There will be a lot of pressure in the build up to the London Games on British coaches as well as our athletes, but we can all prepare for this pressure and strive for even better performances by making the most of these opportunities to learn from each other.”’
