I play a Sport in which support for "The Amateur Curler" has been removed in favour of the Funding of the UK's current Winter Olympic hopes.
The Powers that be(who have all awarded themselves more than adequate salaries) seem to have forgotten that not only this batch but also the future's Olympic Curlers, will need to be recruited from these ignored amateurs.
wee eddie. The Real McHoy (3 Golds in cycling) said words much the same as you earlier today in an interview. The reason Australia do so well is because they encourage every one to take part in sports of all kinds. A bigger base is needed at the bottom of the pyramid in all sports in this country, and the best of them should be encouraged and funded.
