Nicholl makes a telling point though that Brooke and Coulson et al have to consider seriously in the short term, Nicholl says "We want an objective and transparent approach". Ammendment-4, drafted and proposed by me and seconded by Henry Budgett for the BTA AGM is about this exactly, transparency. With the mess that the elite/WCPP funding is alleged to have been in this Olympic year, and with rumours of further "assimilation" and more athletes than existing funding, its about time the BTA put its' own house in order.
Oh yes, why is UK Sport in such a state of flux, yet so dominant? Liz Nicholl is listed "acting chief executive"; Sue Campbell, the" acting chair of UK Sport" and Max Jones " who retires in March as UK Athletics' performance director" - Hardly suggests an organisation in control.
Talking of which, the BTA will be sending their team to the ITU Congress soon, just over a week until the voting - "Let the games begin" - I wonder if UK Sport has a funding model for how many executives it takes to vote at an international congress?
