UK Sport Launches 'No Compromise' Consultation

A national consultation is being launched on Monday to determine whether Britain should change the entire way it funds elite sport.

UK Sport invests £100m of National Lottery and government money into high-performance sport each year.

Its medals-based, 'no-compromise' policy has been credited with the country's Olympic and Paralympic success over the past two decades.

But the past two years have seen unprecedented criticism of its approach, with a series of controversies over funding decisions and athlete welfare leading to demands for an overhaul.
