UK Sport has announced a record pot of £347m of Olympic and Paralympic sports funding to be distributed in the run-up to the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games
Cycling, rowing, boxing, athletics and gymnastics have been given increases, but several sports, including swimming, basketball, volleyball and handball, are paying the price for missing medal targets with severe cuts to their income.
Swimming funding has been cut to £21.4m from £25.1m, volleyball (down to £400,000 from £3.5m), plus basketball, handball, wrestling and table tennis, which miss out on funding altogether.
