Nottinghamshire's Olympic canoeing champions Tim Baillie and Etienne Stott have defended the way lottery funding is targeted at sports with the best chance of medal success.
The pair, who won gold in the canoe slalom at London 2012, were speaking at the Nottinghamshire School Games at the University of Nottingham.
Earlier this month, UK Sport announced it was withdrawing lottery funding for British basketball, synchronised swimming, water polo and weightlifting.
It based its decisions on which sports have the best medal prospects for 2016 and 2020.
British Basketball was stripped of its entire £8.5m funding and will appeal the decision next month.
Baillie and Stott say UK Sport's remit is to achieve success at the elite level and it has to make difficult decisions with a limited pot of money. Stott also added that questions could be asked by the public if funding was directed towards sports which don't bring success.
