" the five sports that
lost their olympic and paralympic funding have had their appeals rejected by uk sport. badminton, archery, weightlifting, fencing and wheelchair rugby all miss out on millions of pounds for their tokyo 2020 preparations. the chief executive of uk sport says though, that they stand by their decision. we are talking to sports who have medal potential for tokyo. we haven‘t been able to stretch our resources as far as those who have got some medal potential, but not strong medal potential. so the opportunity the sports had was to indicate, give us some evidence they had strong or probable medal potential in tokyo. but none of them did. it has been difficult for the sports and the athletes concerned because the outcome of no investment has an impact on their ambitions for
tokyo and beyond. well badminton actually achieved it‘s medal target in the rio olympics, as marcus ellis and chris langridge won bronze in the men‘s doubles. as a result, gb badminton said it was "staggered" by the decision to reject its appeal. iam i am absolutely devastated. it is shocking. i do feel it is shocking. the way uk sport have gone about this the badminton. it doesn‘t matter what we have achieved, the fa ct matter what we have achieved, the fact we won a bronze medal in rio doesn‘t make any difference, it is about predicting for the future. badminton is one of those sports, you versus me, who knows who is going to win. i fancy my chances on myself, but it is hard to predict that person is going to go on and wina that person is going to go on and win a gold medal. that is the beauty of the sport, you cannot measure it. uk sport don‘t like that, they want fa cts uk sport don‘t like that, they want facts and figures we cannot produce, even though we have a possible
chance to go and get a medal in tokyo twenty20, but unfortunately they don‘t believe us. so funding gone for those five sports i mentioned a minute ago, but could there still be a glimmer of hope for them? our sports news correspondent richard conway can tell you. there is one last chance for those who wish to pursue it, they can go to sport resolutions, which is the last chance saloon for the sport if they want to get their funding back. some big decisions, it will cost time and money to do that. fencing have lost £4 million, £4.2 million of funding have lost £4 million, £4.2 million offunding in have lost £4 million, £4.2 million of funding in total after this decision. they say they will probably be the end of the road for them and they will probably do a crowd sourcing fundraising drive to them and they will probably do a crc and ourcing fundraising drive to them and they will probably do a crc and get:ing fundraising drive to them and they will probably do a crc and get some ndraising drive to them and they will probably do a crc and get some ndraisii to drive to the elite " ' " thel 26 route. so they may not go down that route. badminton, they say all options are open and they will consider their
next steps. it will be for all of those sports to decide if they want to ta ke those sports to decide if they want to take this on and appeal against it because at the moment they are not getting funding for tokyo. the england all rounder ben stokes has become the most expensive foreign player in indian premier league history. rising pune supergiants paid £1.7 for him this morning, which surpasses the £1.1 million pounds that was paid for kevin pietersen and andrew flintoff in 2009. stokes followed the auction on social media and said...
