There are several Olympic champions roaming the island of Singapore during the Youth Olympic Games.  Here’s some advice from Russian pole vaulting legend, Yelena Isinbayeva,

“Well, there are not only obstacles in sport, but also in life.  What I hope to do in Singapore is to give the young athletes the benefit of my personal experience and to tell them that things do not always go as planned, that there are many ups and downs in sports and in life.  What you need to do each time you are faced with obstacles or misfortunes is to learn from the experience and try not to repeat it.”
