I am so extremely proud of all his achievements. As many people have told me in the last few weeks Andy has accomplished more in his 36 years than most people do in their lifetime. We have been deeply moved by all the beautiful tributes received during this immensely sad time."
– Jan Paterson, Deputy Chef de Mission at London 2012, British Olympic Association
His numerous achievements are a credit to the extraordinary effort which he dedicated to his sport. Andrew will be greatly missed and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends today."
