We asked users of the BBC Sport website what they would do if they were in charge of British sport.
Could we produce another Paula?
What policies are needed to turn the nation from a bunch of almost-rans into a highly-motivated population of winners?
And where will we find the next Tim Henman, George Best, Gareth Edwards or Paula Radcliffe?
After reading through hundreds of excellent suggestions, the best two manifestos have been selected.
The winners - Annie Thomas and Jennifer Taylor - read their ideas out at Sport Summit, which the BBC hosted in association with UK Sport at BBC Television Centre on 25 March.
Here's Annie's first:
"If I was in charge of sport in the UK, I would:
re-introduce specialist physical education colleges
appoint a physical education specialist to every junior school
introduce a 'healthy half-hour' daily for pupils; make junior membership and usage of sports facilities free
forge closer links between Sports Development Officers and schools
choose one initiative and stick to it - Sport For All
pool all revenue and appoint one major body to oversee spending
wage cap footballers
attach World Class Performance athletes to local schools and clubs to promote the benefits of sport
encourage the media to celebrate achievement in sport."
"If I were in charge of British sport, I would ensure that all sports - despite their numbers of participation or success - would receive positive coverage and support.
"Being part of the women's national volleyball team it is like banging your head against the wall, when you have a team of players willing to strive and train for success but constantly hindered by the lack of financial funding.
"I am sure its like this for many others, but when category 'A' sports keep receiving and receiving and they do not know what to spend their money on, it makes me mad that we can not afford accommodation for our players to stay in between training camps - never mind go to play competitions and show the world that there is potential in our sport."
Thanks for all your entries. It's good to know so many of you care so passionately about the future of British sport.
