11-time World Champion Usain Bolt said: “I always say that the children are the future and I commend the organisers of London 2017 on this initiative to give young people the chance to buy affordable tickets. I hope it will inspire many of them to get into athletics and look forward to seeing many young people filling seats next summer.”
