Great Britain's curlers boasted a team considered among the strongest in the competition,
but they failed to reach the knockout phase
, although their team leader Brad Askew insisted positives could still be taken from their performances.
"It means so much to me," Burrows said. "I can now train even harder and look at that medal for motivation."
GB Youth Olympic short-track team manager Joanna Eley was impressed with how Burrows, 14, and Djemal, 15, coped in the event, considering how little time they are able to spend training on the ice.
"Compared to the rest of Europe we don't get much time, it's quite expensive and a lot of the clubs here are quite small and can't afford to buy more [ice time].
"Aydin, probably out of everyone in the competition, has the least amount of time available to train, [just a couple of hours per week], so for him to be able to compete with those training four times more often is really encouraging," Eley said.
For Burrows and Djemal, like many of Great Britain's Youth Olympians, the next senior Games are likely to come a little too soon for them to make the step up.
However, many of them will be expected to be in the team for Pyeongchang, South Korea 2018.
"If someone has got a talent to excel and show off our country on a world stage, I think we should go out of our way to make sure they are funded properly and make sure they are successful," said Woodward.
Reflecting on his own role at Innsbruck 2012, he added: "I've loved it.
"The Olympics is such a wonderful and powerful event and I think it's fantastic. Roll on another four years for the next one in Lillehammer."
