It has been no surprise that following the rejection by UK Sport of the appeals made by 7 sports over their funding bids for Tokyo 2020 the focus has been on the so-called No Compromise system and its implications for Sport. We have covered this ongoing debate at the Think Tanks for a number of years but this week has caused more reaction than at any other time.

A remarkable year for all sorts of reasons, but 2016 just didn't know when to stop producing stories and news.
As we head towards the end of the year the excellent summary from Dan Roan - 2016 The Year Sport Refused to stop is probably the best place to start and finish. It can't be bettered to summarise what in general has been a good year for sport 'on the pitch/track/road/court etc but not so great outside.

With so much good news about the performance of sport and the positive messages about the social impact of sport it is all too easy to forget the 'dark side' of the sports world. We are massive sport fans at the Sports Think Tank but we know we should never be complacent about the issues facing the sector.

There is a great emphasis on digital and data in the sport sector at the moment and we are bombarded at the Sports Think Tank by people and companies claiming to have the 'solution' to all of our problems. So what is going on?

The long-awaited Code for Sports Governance was Launched at the BMA headquarters in London yesterday. In a show of unity, the CEOs of UK Sport and Sport England Jennie price and Liz Nichols presided over a double act presentation. Unity of the code has been a strong request from the sector who often report separately to both bodies, so this was a welcome step.
