Wrestling Gets No funding from UK Sport but Judo, Taekwondo and Fencing Get Increases

Ill keep this short however UK sport have announced their next wave of funding.

Judo, Taekwondo and fencing all have had increases which is great however sadly Wrestling is among the sports to get none. The article is here

and for the full UK sport point of view click here.

However this is clearly about winning medals as stated by the UK sport article and this quote from its director Simon Timpson.

“By its very nature elite sport is intensely competitive and the cost of success in the Rio environment means it is vital that every pound we invest has a real benefit in terms of medal performance.

Its a bit of a kick in the teeth for Wrestling yet again but Im sure its a tough decision for all those sports as there is only so much money involved.
