Why did the BBC hold Sport Summit?
The BBC hosted the biggest ever debate on the state of British sport.

Stars of all generations were joined by 200 of the most influential sporting officials and administrators on Tuesday 25 March for a day of discussion and debate.

Peter Salmon, director of BBC Sport, explained why...

We thought we'd find some physical space to bring together all the movers and shakers in the sports world for a unique occasion.

We're going to examine the big issues together
Peter Salmon
Director of BBC Sport
The Sports Personality of the Year is often the first and only time in the year that all the people who run sport in Britain meet. And they are here at the BBC.

"There are a lot of pressing issues, from Wembley, the Olympics, to the plight of football clubs, so we thought it would be a great idea to get these people together once a year.

Sport Summit guests include:
Jacques Rogge, President of the IOC
Richard Caborn, UK Minister for Sport
Francis Baron, RFU Chief Executive
David Dein, FA Vice Chairman
Brian Barwick, ITV Controller of Sport

"We examined the big issues together - how we pick future winners and where all the money goes.

"As hoped, there was lots of interaction- and we found out whether those fans and spectators and those involved in sport feel the same way as those who actually run it."
