Ten Prince's Trust 2012 Games Young Ambassadors met the British Prime Minister David Cameron at a reception held at 10 Downing Street recently.

The Prince’s Trust 2012 Games Young Ambassadors were invited to the Downing Street reception, which was held ahead of the Laureus World Sports Awards in London.

Also at the reception were some of the world’s most prestigious sporting figures, including world number one tennis player Novak Djokovic, boxing legend Lennox Lewis, 2011 Tour de France winner Cadel Evans, Formula 1 driver David Coulthard and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

The 10 young people were all Opportunity 2012 Young Ambassadors, who are involved in sports and arts in their area and are inspiring other young people through the power of the 2012 Olympic Games.

They spoke to the Prime Minister and the sporting figures about their roles as Opportunity 2012 Games Young Ambassadors and their work in their communities.

Ryan Coomber, 21, of Peterborough, who turned his life around with support from The Prince’s Trust, said: “It was an amazing experience and I got to meet some fantastic people. Not only did I meet the Prime Minister but I chatted with Alan Hansen, Lennox Lewis and Arsene Wenger. They are inspiring people and it was honour to be in a room with some of the best sports people in the world.”
