Scottish Parliament: Tokyo Olympic Games (Team GB Success) (8 Sep 2021)

Brian Whittle: ...Josh Kerr’s bronze medal in the 1500m, with a time that ranks him second in the UK all-time list. We should ponder that for a second—that is quicker than those track legends Steve Ovett, Sebastian Coe and Steve Cram. Only Mo Farah has run quicker. It is just astounding, and I should say that Josh was coached in the United States by an old friend of mine, Mark Rowland, himself a bronze...

Scottish Parliament: Changing Lives Through Sport and Physical Activity (25 Apr 2019)

Brian Whittle: ...on the STEP programme. I do not know how many decision makers in this place—or in any other place for that matter—fully grasped that concept. On Tuesday night, I watched a TV programme in which Sebastian Coe said that sport is “not funded properly. We’ve strangled the life out of the youth services in this country ... Politicians ... still really don’t get that ... They don’t...

Tributes: Baroness Jowell (14 May 2018)

Mary Creagh: ...and she said, “Well, I’m living here for the next six weeks.” I said, “Gosh, are you not even going home? Do you have enough stuff with you?” and she said, “Yes. Essentially, me and Sebastian Coe are the joint mayors of the Olympic village.” I just knew that she was glorying in that amazing six weeks of tremendous sport. A friend of mine sent me a text to say that she had...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Devolution of Powers (24 Jan 2018)

Drew Hendry: The Secretary of State has failed to answer for his broken promise to this House and to his Tory colleagues in Scotland on clause 11. That means Karren Brady, Sebastian Coe, Joan Bakewell and 26 Church of England bishops now have more say over Scotland’s future than Scotland’s elected MPs. Will the Secretary of State finally apologise for that sad state of affairs?

Scottish Parliament: #Scotlandhour (7 Mar 2013)

Christina McKelvie: ..., and I am a committed mountain climber myself although I do not get as much opportunity these days. However, our mountains inspire us and I do not think that anyone has driven through Glen Coe without the hairs on the back of their neck standing up. Our tartan—the fabric of Scotland—is on the list, as something that shows how colourful and intertwined we all are. Kilts are also...

Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (23 Jan 2013)

Andrea Leadsom: ...that many PSP supporters are here today. I will share the story of one recent fundraising event. As patron of the PSP Association, I was delighted to be invited to the Dorchester—Sebastian Coe was the guest of honour—as the guest of Brigadier Michael Koe, the association’s founder and former chairman, and Christopher Kemball, the current chairman. The tragic irony of PSP is that...

Estimates Day — [4th Allotted Day] — Vote on Account 2012-13 — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Olympics and Paralympics (Funding) (27 Feb 2012)

Damian Collins: ...and Aylesford (Tracey Crouch) referred to how the Olympic games will inspire young people across the country. They are a major sporting event. One of my first sporting memories was probably of Sebastian Coe winning his gold medal in Moscow in 1980. The 1984 Olympics were an inspiration to my generation of school children across the country not only for the great variety of sports on the...

Scottish Parliament: 2012 Olympic Games Legacy (23 Jun 2011)

Alex Salmond: ...expenditure should have been Barnettable, according to the Treasury funding formula. Until recently, there was a question about whether that expenditure was truly necessary for the games. However, Sebastian Coe, the chief executive of the organising committee, said very recently about the Olympics: “This is not a £9.3 billion sporting project. Seventy-five pence in every pound that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Great Britain Football Team (10 Dec 2008)

Pete Wishart: with his Team GB, and that his and the Prime Minister's attempt to bully Scotland into a Team GB threatens the very continuation of the Scottish football team?

Jamie McGrigor: ...their country in the games. Scottish athletes did so well in Melbourne; let us do even better in Glasgow.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Olympic Team (6 Oct 2005)

Jamie McGrigor: The Conservatives appreciate very much the enormous effort of Sebastian Coe and his team to secure the Olympic games for the United Kingdom, unlike the SNP, which said that the bid was a waste of money. The success was achieved against all the odds. Sebastian Coe came to the Scottish Parliament to lobby for our support and I am sure that the support that he gained here played no small part in...

Pat McFadden: ...whole country is conscious that the games can be a tremendous showcase for our capital city and our country.

Sport (8 May 2002)

Lord Monro of Langholm: ...tremendous success in ice skating with John Curry, Robin Cousins and Torvill and Dean, but it is now on a plateau. What middle distance runners do we have now? I refer to former competitors such as Sebastian Coe, Steve Ovett, Steve Cram and David Moorcroft. Example is not always crucially important but somehow or other we must bring our athletics back into the limelight. Much more money is...

Athletics (18 Dec 2001)

Baroness Billingham: ...may express my absolute delight at the running order in tonight's list of speakers. I am surely going to be one of the very few people in the world who will be able to say, "I finished ahead of Seb Coe!". I look forward enormously to his contribution.
