Archery GB has been told their appeal against the decision by UK Sport to stop its funding of their World Class Programme, amounting to a loss of income of £2.95m, has been unsuccessful. Archery GB are obviously disappointed with this decision, but intend to find ways to continue the programme and deliver medals for the sport, at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.  However, it means a review is required of the current organisation structure and may mean a loss of some jobs, according to Neil Armitage, Archery GB Chief Executive.

Other sports which have lost their appeal against the cuts include:

Badmington: £5.74m
Fencing: £4.23
Wheelchair Rugby: £3.04m
Weightlifting: £1.71m

The chairman of UK Athletics is demanding a fundamental review of the way in which UK Sport invest the £137.5m a year budget.
