SOUNDBITE BY PHILIPPE HOUSIAUX, PRESIDENT OF PANATHLON WALLONIE-BRUXELLES

- When you are telling the people, telling the youth how to behave on the sport field you are sure that they will behave the same way in their daily live and for the rest of their lives. We hope with the signature today that all the Olympics in the world, all sport federation will accept this manifest and that they will produce every year not only good sport results but also nice people developing their self by fair play. It is a big wave we are creating today and we hope to have let say a positive tsunami for fair play.

SOUNDBITE BY CHRISITIAN HINTERBERGER, PRESIDENT OF EUROPEAN FAIR PLAY MOVEMENT

- The manifesto itself will not change anything. The people who are working on following the manifesto, they will change things. They will change probably sports and probably the world a little bit. It is an historic moment because it reminds all evolved in sport: the media, the spectators, the affiliates, the officials, the trainers that sport is not only the winning or training but that sport is as well positive attitude positive behavior it is a kind of educational tool.

SOUNDBITE BY JEAN-MICHEL SAIVE, BELGIAN PROFESSIONAL TABLE TENNIS PLAYER

- I think there is still a lack of fair play. Let me give you one example, when I started to play soccer which was my first sport the ball went out but the refer gave the ball for our team and in fact the defender and I put the ball out so I went to the empire and I said ok this is my mistake. I put the ball out so it should be for the opposite team to have the free kick so I think I was wright but after of course I get, let say, some remarks from the team and coach and I think it is still like this today in some circumstances so we have to try to promote the right value and say that this is the correct way.

SOUNDBITE BY KIM GEVAERT, BELGIAN SPRINT ATHLETE AND OLYMPIC CHAMPION

- I think, if you think about all the things you learn when you play sports when you are practicing sports as a kid there are values that you carry one into you adult live and you use with colleagues in your every day life so I think if everybody carry those values by hart and use them that we can be a better society. Last year my young daughter was doing a running competition and she felt and another girl past her but instead of being like very joyful the girl immediately went to my girl and said are you ok? Are you fine? And for such a small child a found that really special to already have those value.

SOUNDBITE BY BENOIT HELLINGS, FIRST ALDERMAN, ALDERMAN OF CLIMATE AND SPORTS OF BRUSSEL

- We are very proud here in the city of Brussels to welcome this event. Every day I try in every football club, basketball club to promote fair play but now we have a day, the 7 September. Today we have to fight against racism, sexism, and bad behaviour in sports.

SOUNDBITE BY SIMONA CALLO, PANATHLON INTERNATIONAL SERCRETARY GENERAL

- I think and I hope this day will change the way of doing sport and our live to be a better world for young people and all of us.
