Quotes from SportsAid chief executive Tim Lawler

As the Summer Olympics draw to a close, one fan is feeling a particular kind of pride.

Princess Kate has been keeping close watch as alumni of a charity she backs, SportsAid, rack up medals at the Rio Games. (17 golds, 14 silvers and eight bronze, to be exact.)

SportsAid, which marks its 40th anniversary this year – an event that Kate marked with a celebration dinner at her Kensington Palace home in June – helps up-and-coming athletes with financial and other support as they bid to become heroes of the future.

... When she meets athletes and their families or coaches, Kate is "attentive, curious, informed genuinely passionate," Lawler adds. "Right from the start, we said we would like her to be their champion. She can shine such a great spotlight on them and their story."

And the budding Olympians "take this huge lift that someone like her has that degree of personal interest in their journey."

Kate has "always shown a pride and interest in cycling," says Lawler, and she's interested in shining a light on a host of sports. "Wheelchair basketball is one that we have in our radar to try," adds Lawler, as Kate has told them there will be "a moment for that."
