Britain's success at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival in Sydney has been hailed as very encouraging for Team GB's chances at London 2012.

Team GB won 13 gold medals, 20 silvers and 14 bronzes during the four days.

British Olympic Association chief Simon Clegg said: "It was a tremendously positive experience and they performed exceptionally well.

"One of the most encouraging things was that the team did well in sports like taekwondo and gymnastics."

Mark England, the head of Team GB in Sydney, said: "The fact Team GB achieved a position on the medal podium in all 10 Olympic sports in which we competed shows the depth of quality and talent that exists across the board at this age group."
