Imagine life without some of those incredible memories from the London Olympics last summer.

Imagine if Jessica Ennis-Hill wasn't able to take gold in the heptathlon, or Mo Farah hadn't been about to capture the nation's imagination on his way to double gold in the Olympic Stadium?

Those are the questions being asked by the The National Lottery, who fund 1,300 elite athletes through UK Sport - meaning they can focus on being the very best they can be and not worry about how they will fund being a professional athlete.

To demonstrate the point, they got UK stars Adam Gemili and Katarina Johnson-Thompson to discuss what they would do if without Athletics in their lives - and both give some pretty interesting answers.
