Progress report on road to Beijing

From Matthew Crawcour, UK Sport

UK Sport now provides a quarterly(ish) opportunity to put the latest Performance-related developments under the microscope. It is that time once again and Liz Nicholl and Peter Keen will be available on Thursday February 15 for the latest look at how our summer Olympic sports in particular are progressing along the road to Beijing and London.

We will provide updated information on all 24 funded summer Olympic sports as before, but will also take time to look at how the high-performance system has developed in the 10 months since the additional 2012 funding has begun to flow – looking at the key impact areas of coaching, sports science and medicine, and numbers of athletes within the system. There will, of course, be time for you to ask questions around any aspect of the performance brief and enjoy at least a half share in a Danish pastry

We will get underway at 11.00am, here at UK Sport’s offices (40 Bernard Street, WC 1N 1ST). Please let me know if you are able to attend.
