OLYMPIC SPORTS FUNDING 2013-2017

on Tuesday, 18 December 2012.

UK Sport Announcement today

OLYMPIC SPORTS FUNDING 2013-2017

Swimming, which underperformed in London and is in a state of flux, was effectively placed on 12 months' probation along with boxing, fencing and judo. Over four years it is due to receive £21.4m, down from £25.1m, but will have to prove its effectiveness after 12 months.

On Tuesday, British Swimming was told by Sport England that its grassroots funding would also be limited to one year until it could prove its worth. "We were disappointed and they were disappointed with the performance in London," said the UK Sport chief executive, Liz Nicholl. She said that a new structure, including a new performance director and head coach, would have to prove its worth in a year's time in order to release the rest of the funding.
