|Olympics: Ministers seek to boost 'patchy' sports provision|
The BBC reports: School sports provision is "patchy" and ministers want to boost participation on the back of Team GB's Olympic success, the culture secretary says.
Jeremy Hunt said ministers wanted to "make sure that the very best examples are spread throughout the country".
His comments come after the British Olympic Association urged more funding and a "step change" in sports policy.
An Olympic-style event for schools has been set up but Labour says coalition cuts have "destroyed" its efforts.
Speaking on BBC Breakfast, Mr Hunt, said "primary schools is where it all starts and catching people young is incredibly important" but he accepted pupils faced "an element of luck", for example in terms of having an inspirational teacher.
