UK Sport commits £3million to help fund athletes from 14 sports during qualification for Tokyo 2020

Daily Mail - 12-07


Skateboarding, surfing and softball are among 14 Olympic and Paralympic sports to have received £3million in funding from UK Sport ahead of Tokyo 2020. The new 'Aspiration Fund' is intended to help more athletes in more sports qualify for the Olympics and Paralympics, by helping those who perhaps do not have podium potential at this stage but could develop over the next few years with funding.
